AUSTRALIAN FESTIVAL OF CHAMBER MUSIC 2019 UNVEILED

Pipa virtuoso Wu Man, saxophonist Amy Dickson and cellist Johannes Moser are among the guests on Artistic Director Kathryn Stott’s second Festival program.

KATHRYN STOTT ON TAKING OVER TOWNSVILLE

A close friend of Piers Lane, the British pianist admits he will be a hard act to follow. We talk to the AFCM’s new AD about old ideas and new brooms.

AUSTRALIAN FESTIVAL OF CHAMBER MUSIC OPENING WEEKEND

From Bach and Lieder to world premieres and tango, the AFCM’s opening weekend delivers fresh, exciting programmes full of contrast and elan, writes Jessica Duchen.

Why I read Limelight

“As a musician living in the UK but directing a festival in Australia, Limelight Magazine is an absolute must have! I really love the mix of fast news, in-depth features and of course all the info on who is doing what. I frequently take it on my travels, without any doubt, and really enjoy catching up with all events Down Under. Reading it from Europe, Limelight quickly makes any distance disappear and I certainly wouldn’t want to be without it.”

★★★★½ LOVE LETTERS

Musical love notes written in everything from chansons to tango – and an eight-cello Tristan.

★★★★☆ GYPSIES, PIPERS AND DUKES

Pavel Fischer’s Mad Piper captivates Townsville in a lavish feast of folk-inspired music.

★★★★☆ BACH BY CANDLELIGHT

 Writer Jessica Duchen and violinist Karen Gomyo ensure Bach’s music remains as fresh as ever.

★★★★½ SUBLIME SCHUBERT

Francis Gouton and the Orava Quartet tackle a Schubert mammoth.

★★★★½ FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

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

★★★½☆ BACH BY CANDLELIGHT 

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

★★★★☆ EVENING SERIES – OP 127!

A clever pairing is more than simply programming by numbers.
