Selby & Friends – Back from the Brink

March 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$57 – $75
About the concert

Selby & Friends 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.

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. Dvořák’s first piano trio is an intimate view into the great composer’s favoured genre, and Ravel represents one whose own path fused modern elements with the baroque, classicism and jazz.

The brilliant and versatile cellist Clancy Newman is welcomed back from the US to join Australian icon Dene Olding and Artistic Director & pianist, Kathryn Selby, performing a Selby & Friends concert together for the first time since May last year.
