Coming up at Four Winds...
“I’m so pleased that we will be welcoming these six exceptional artists across the three concerts which make up the 2018 Windsong Series. The Windsong Pavilion is one of the region’s finest assets, and it is because of the exceptional acoustics and quality of the performance space that such eminent artists are excited to accept our invitation to perform here on the Far South Coast”
James Crabb, Four Winds Artistic Director
Windsong Series #1, Sunday 17 June, brings back two of Four Winds' great friends to the region; Simon Tedeschi (piano) and Andrew Haveron (violin) who will be performing a stunning program of Romantic music featuring Violin Sonatas by Beethoven, Schubert and Grieg and ending with a work by Fritz Kreisler which has been described as one of the most beautifully crafted pieces for violin: Viennese Rhapsodic Fantasietta.
Windsong Series #2, Saturday 7 July, brings Joyce Yang (piano) one of the leading pianists in the newest generation of virtuosi from the United States to the Windsong Pavilion. This is Joyce’s first full Australian recital tour presented in partnership with Musica Viva. Joyce will be giving a recital of characterful works all of which were composed by masters of the keyboard Chopin, Debussy and Grieg.
Windsong Series #3, Sunday 19 August, welcomesFour Winds’ former Artistic Director and virtuosic recorder player Genevieve Lacey to perform in collaboration with Lars Ulrik Mortensen (harpsichord) and Jane Gower (baroque bassoon) for a program exploring music from the Baroque period from such fine composers as Handel, Vivaldi and Telemann. This exceptional international collaboration will bring an infectious energy to this music. The performance will feature a Willard Martin harpsichord which has recently been generously donated to Four Winds.
