Sydney Symphony Orchestra – Alessio Bax Performs Mozart
Date Fri 22nd Mar 2019
Mendelssohn The Hebrides Overture (Fingal’s Cave)
Mozart Piano Concerto No.27 in B flat
Beethoven Symphony No.8

Andrew Haveron: violin-director
Alessio Bax: piano
Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Alessio Bax plays Mozart’s transcendent final piano concerto, Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture transports us to the wild isles of Scotland and Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony packs a punch with its unstoppable energy.

Mendelssohn visited Scotland’s Hebridean Islands when he was twenty. The incredible seascape and the otherworldly Fingal’s Cave inspired one of his best known works, and one of the greatest soundscapes in orchestral literature.

Mozart's final piano concerto stands apart for its sober perfection and innocent directness. The concerto’s slow movement suspends time with a melody as serene as it is simple, played with disarming grace by Alessio Bax, a pianist who communicates the radiance of this music. This is one of the composer’s most personal works: reflective, nostalgic and songful.

And Beethoven releases his inner child in his fizzy Symphony No.8—short, and seriously playful. Overshadowed by its bigger siblings, the Eighth is cheekily radical music. Instead of a grand statement, this is the symphony as a bundle of vivacious energy.

Written in 1987, by Anthony McCarten and Stephen Sinclair, Ladies Night has been translated into 12 languages and remains New Zealand’s most commercially successful play, of all time.

With eight sell-out tours of Britain and the U.K, it won France’s premiere theatre award for comedy- The Molière Prize, in 2001.

The Clapton Unplugged Show
Date Fri 31st May 2019
The Clapton Unplugged Show

the man… the music…

celebrating Eric Clapton and his legendary Unplugged Concert
……Layla….Signe …..Before You Accuse Me….Running on Faith…..
……Tears In Heaven…..Wonderful Tonight…I Shot the Sheriff…

Eric Clapton’s career has spanned over six decades. Lauded as being the greatest guitarist of all time, his roots are firmly and obviously embedded in the blues tradition of which he remains both a student and visionary. In his unforgettable ‘Unplugged’ Concert, Clapton paid homage and respect to his roots and those fellow legends that influenced his playing so significantly.
The music was minimalist, alternating between his reworked pop songs such as Layla, the traditional blues of Robert Johnson and Bo Diddley and new songs, including Tears in Heaven, that were an outpouring and expression of a difficult period of his life.

It was honest, real, fun, at times raw and very very special!
The ensuing Album release won three Grammy Awards and sold in excess of 26 million copies worldwide.

‘The Clapton Unplugged Show’ features the inspired vocals and guitar playing of Mark Shelley who, with his long term band, respectfully recreates the magic of that event.

Support Act –
‘The Songs of James Taylor’…the consummate Singer Songwriter.

Daniel Thompson's Johnny Cash Live: San Quentin 50 Years On

In 1969, off the back of the huge success of 1968's 'At Folsom Prison' album, Johnny Cash recorded the second of his legendary prison albums at California’s notorious maximum security prison, 'At San Quentin'.

With the 'Folsom' album kick starting a golden era of Cash’s career, 'At San Quentin' continued his meteoric rise to his place as a legendary figure and icon of 20th century popular music. During the February 24 recording session, in typical Johnny Cash fashion, he got the already enthusiastic inmates on side with his song 'San Quentin' which opens with the lyrics "San Quentin, you’ve been living hell to me" and he immediately replayed the song at the request of his cheering audience with both versions included on the original release of the 'At San Quentin' album.

Most notably the album included the worldwide smash hit single, A Boy Named Sue, which undeniably made Cash a global superstar and household name. Sue became Cash’s highest ever charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was only held out of the number one spot by the Rolling Stones ‘Honky Tonk Women’.
