Nigel Westlake and Lior’s ‘Compassion’

Concert or Performance

16 Jul 2021 Once Only Event

Heartbreaking beautiful: a ‘Festival Extra’ production in July, presented in association with Musica Viva Australia. Together, Nigel Westlake and Lior have collaborated to create a symphony of songs of love, loss and compassion that unites the soulful beauty of Lior’s voice with the radiance and vivid drama of Westlake’s orchestral style.
‘Compassion’ is a lyrical and highly emotional work, drawing upon a collection of profound and poetic insights of Islam and Judaism, and the myriad of influences Westlake and Lior have been able to bring from their incredibly diverse backgrounds.

Performed by an octet which comprises some of Australia’s best ensemble musicians, this unique collaboration celebrates the importance of music as a potent means of communication, and how mercy, love and understanding can bring people together across the divides of race and fear
