The Eulogy + Special Guest Q&A

Concert or Performance

23 Oct 2020 Once Only Event

The Eulogy unravels the truths and myths behind the life and career of one of Australia’s most brilliant, prolific and least understood concert pianists: Geoffrey Tozer.

The screening will be followed by a special Q&A with director Janine Hosking.

As an eight-year-old prodigy, Geoffrey Tozer astonished audiences around the world with his remarkable talent. As an adult, he continued to perform in Australia and internationally – but, for a career that initially promised so much, Tozer’s life came to a shocking end.

At his memorial service in 2009, Tozer’s friend and former prime minister, Paul Keating, delivered a searing eulogy, painting a haunting picture of a lonely genius shunned by the Australian musical establishment.

Intrigued by Keating’s controversial eulogy to find out what went wrong with Tozer’s career, esteemed conductor and music educator Richard Gill goes on a journey with members of Tozer’s family, inner circle and musical colleagues to discover the man behind Keating’s eulogy.

The film reveals the epic tale and musical legacy of one of the greatest pianists Australia never really knew.
