Selby & Friends – Back from the Brink

March 17 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$55 – $57

Selby & Friends opens its 2022 Twilight Series with Back from the Brink

We return to the stage, back from the brink, after what seems like a long hiatus with a fascinating program celebrating composers who fought against the establishment and in doing so forged a courageous way forward for those that followed.


Amy Beach
Piano Trio Op.150 (1938)

Maurice Ravel
Piano Trio in A minor (1914)


Dene Olding violin
Clancy Newman cello
Kathryn Selby piano

About the artists

Formed in large part from a missed concert in 2021, this concert introduces the great American composer, Amy Beach, who wrote a strong rebuttal to comments made by Dvořák about women in music and who became a national symbol of women’s creative power. Ravel represents one whose own path fused modern elements with the baroque, classicism and jazz. We welcome our good friend, the brilliant and versatile cellist Clancy Newman back to Selby & Friends where he and Australian icon Dene Olding will perform together for the first time.
