Rachel is so very excited about this concert – because it’s been so long in the pipeline!
The wonderful Anthony Schulz is no stranger to Bach in the Dark live audiences. Rachel and Anthony met just under 10 years ago, and instantly clicked. Their music making has been called ‘audacious’ and ‘sublime’ (not in the same sentence!) – get ready for a night that’s a little bit different!
The combination of cello and accordion works beautifully – Anthony’s talents as an improvisor, jazz player and a master of the piano accordion means that the pair can move from Bach to Bartok to contemporary music seamlessly.
Over 2020 the duo couldn’t play due to the strict Melbourne lockdown (where Anthony is based), and then the Sydney travel restrictions – these two have been desperate to play together for you all! They will play something for everyone – Bach, pieces inspired by Bach written just for them by friends and Australian composers Richard Charlton, Raffaele Marcellino and MB Sibson, two of Anthony’s originals and some wild Hungarian folk music too. It’ll be a concert with a difference!
