Thanks to the valued donors of the Four Winds A Key to the Future campaign, a new 7ft Shigeru-Kawai Semi-Concert Grand piano is arriving this week. The piano will be on trial in the beautiful Windsong Pavilion at Four Winds, Bermagui.
There is a wonderful opportunity to hear the instrument during the forthcoming performance ‘Race Against Time’ this weekend on Sunday 7 August at 2pm.
Two of Australia’s finest pianists Tamara-Anna Cislowska and Alan Hicks will be performing. Tamara was recently guest (expert) commentator on ABC Classic FM, for the live ABC Classic FM broadcasts of the Sydney International Piano Competition. Her CD, Butterflying, was at no.2 on the ARIA Classical charts in July.
‘Race Against Time’ is a gripping and moving story about the life of Australian Frederick Septimus Kelly – Gold medal Olympian rower, decorated soldier, renowned pianist and brilliant composer whose life was tragically cut short by the Great War.
Carrillo Gantner is joining the ensemble of exceptional artists to narrate the performance. Carrillo will be reciting words from Kelly’s diary, some of which tell of his time on the South Coast.
