    Event description

    Exclusive private Musical Soiree event with Celia Craig, Thomas Marlin and Michael Ierace, in the distinguished new North Adelaide Baroque Hall - prior to its official publicΒ opening.

    A specially arrangedΒ early opportunity to appreciate the glittering bespokeΒ interior and superior acoustics of this historic building with itsΒ handbuilt pianos: a veryΒ special and atmospheric evening.

    "How often have I actually discovered in myself that enthusiasm raises the artist above himself, how in an ordinary mood one would not have been able to accomplish many of the things for which enthusiasm lends one everything, energy, fire...

    My imagination can picture no fairer happiness than to continue living for art..."Β Β Clara Schumann

    Celia, Thomas and Michael ("Tarrawatta")Β present a refined and atmosphericΒ program of 19th century Romantic music-Β beginning with solo cello forΒ Beethoven's Sonata in A, aΒ masterpiece written just a few yearsΒ after the famous Heligenstadt Testament explored his tragic loss of hearing.Β 

    ThreeΒ Romances by Clara Schumann, her last work, written in response to a visit from the Schumann's friend Brahms, are embraced byΒ two unpublished and attractiveΒ arrangements of Mendelssohn and SchubertΒ by the significant Adelaide composer Miriam Hyde.Β 

    The concert concludes withΒ a dramatic work by Glinka: his 'Trio Pathetique'. Think Tchaikovsky, because Glinka is at a similar time and place, consideredΒ the founder of Russian nationalism in music, developing a distinct Russian style of classical music from his home in St Petersburg. ThisΒ also links to the story of the philanthropicΒ founder of this stunning new Concert Hall.The counterplay ofΒ lyrical melodic phrases at the heart of Glinka's emotional work will delight and soothe, before a dramatic close.

    A refined and exclusive evening for lovers of fine music and architecture.
