Rachel is so excited to play a concert featuring the music of an Australian composer who was so special to her on what would have been his birthday.
From Wikipedia…. “Martin Wesley-Smith(10 June 1945 – 26 September 2019) was an Australian composer with an eclectic output ranging from children’s songs to environmental events. He worked in a range of musical styles, including choral music, operas, computer music, music theatre, chamber and orchestral music, and audiovisual pieces which bring words, music and images together. He often worked with his librettist brother, Peter Wesley-Smith.”
Martin was a great friend of Rachel’s, and a huge influence on her in many ways – and this concert is a showcase of some of his music featuring the cello. Rachel will play Martin’s audio-visual piece “Welcome to the Hotel Turismo”, “Uluru Song” for solo cello – and a few other pieces of Martin’s too – some inspired by Bach, some inspired by East Timor. She’d love for you to join her for this concert – you’ll love Martin’s music as much as she does.
Ticket sales will close at 4.30pm on the day of the concert. The stream will also stay accessible for a few days after the concert, so if you have plans on this particular night, you can always watch it a few days afterwards…
The live stream will be broadcast on the YouTube platform. You will need a link to access the stream – this link will be emailed to all ticket purchasers 2 hours before the event.
