A unique recital, Philanthropists' Choice honours philanthropic support of the arts – a necessary symbiosis that dates back to the time of Shakespeare and in recent years, has become more important than ever to the performance of chamber music. As a way of saying thanks, Sally has created a concert around inviting the donors to step into the role of artistic directors and nominate works that they would like to see played.
The result is inspired and varied:
Banney (World Premiere) Psalms
Piazzolla (arr. Simpson) Libertango
Trad. (arr. Britten) O Waly Waly
Trad. (arr.Walker) Doina Sus Pe Culmea Dealului
Albinoni (attr.) Adagio
Trad. (arr. Wheelan) Caoineadh Cu Chulainn
Paganini (arr. Walker/Simpson) Caprice #24
Trad. (arr. Walker/Simpson) Odessa Bulgar
Internationally acclaimed flautist Sally Walker will perform Banney’s Psalms with mezzo-soprano Jenny Duck-Chong, director of award-winning Sydney ensemble Halcyon and Christ Church Cathedral organist Peter Guy. Joining them on stage will be TMD Young Artists: accordionist Neil Simpson, flautists Hannah Caterer, Sarah Monk and introducing flautist Sarah Mepham, who is also a valued contributor to the operation of the Twilight Musical Dialogues recital series.
Entry is by donation at the door.
