AUSTRALIAN FESTIVAL OF CHAMBER MUSIC 2018 PROGRAM UNVEILED

Artistic Director Kathryn Stott has unveiled her first program for the Festival, with a swathe of new artists, premieres and plenty of old favourites.

British pianist Kathryn Stott will take over in 2018 following Piers Lane’s final year at the helm.

As Piers Lane prepares to pass the baton at this year’s AFCM, we look at the life and career of a great Australian pianist.

He realised early that if he wanted his instrument to be taken seriously he had to perform contemporary music.

Reviews

Francis Gouton and the Orava Quartet tackle a Schubert mammoth.

A Rolls Royce line-up takes a musical Winter Palace by storm.

It’s Bach, Jim, but not always as we know it.

A clever pairing is more than simply programming by numbers.

Don’t let the title fool you – these are classics as you don’t often hear them.

From Mozart’s Classical perfection to the dark turbulence of Taneyev, music shows it’s power to emote.

A marathon day of Bach brilliance, crowned by two astonishing Anderszewski performances.

Anderszewski, Qin and Dickson head an extraordinary musical evening.
