Don’t miss this rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the sounds of a 300-year-old cello. Cellist Anthony Albrecht, known for his “dramatic flair” and “fluent and virtuosic” performances (Seen and Heard International, Sydney Morning Herald) will return to Hobart after a sell-out Tasmanian tour of Where Song Began in January.
Since graduating from The Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program in 2014, Anthony has become a passionate advocate for classical music touring in regional Australia. He is renowned for his accessible, informative and moving “Bach to the Bush” solo recitals, in which he performs two of J.S. Bach’s cello suites and other works for baroque cello, interspersed with fascinating commentary. Anthony was a soloist and featured performer at the 2017 Newcastle Music Festival, and returns to Australia regularly from his home in London to play with groups such as Pinchgut Opera, the Australian Haydn Ensemble, Van Diemen’s Band, ARCO and Adelaide Baroque. He is also co-creator of Where Song Began, with violinist Simone Slattery.
The performance is 2 hours in length, including a short interval with refreshments.
