Easter Saturday Concert 5.30 pm
Loss and Renewal: Chamber Music of J. S. Bach
In this pre-dinner recital Madeleine Easton, violin, Rosanne Hunt, cello and Donald Nicolson, harpsichord – three of Australia’s most respected baroque specialists – will explore the themes of fate, sacrifice and joy in the instrumental music of J.S. Bach, reflecting the overarching theme and experience of Easter.

The programme will feature two of Bach’s innovative sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord, where the keyboard instrument plays a melodic role equal to that of the violin. Rosanne will play the second suite for solo cello, whose contrasting dance movements constitute one of music’s most profound creations.

Presented by Melbourne Bach Choir
Date: Saturday, 16 April 2022

Rick Prakhoff, founding Artistic Director of Melbourne Bach Choir conducts two superb concerts for Easter at Melbourne Recital Centre this year. On Good Friday (15 April) it’s Bach’s towering St Matthew Passion and on Easter Saturday a joyful combination of Bach and Mozart works, including Bach’s most popular orchestral suite and Mozart’s beloved Vespers.

Rick considers the Passion the greatest choral work in the entire Western canon, and to be able to perform it as well as the sublime works on the Saturday program in the space of two days will make for an unforgettable Easter!

Australia’s pre-eminent Evangelist, Andrew Goodwin
The Age’s critic, Clive O’Connell, described Andrew’s performance as the Evangelist in MBC’s last St Matthew Passion as

"one of those performances that lives in the memory for days, the delivery clarion-clear with unshakeable reliability, even in the line's stretching high tessitura, and an emotional responsiveness leading to several pin-drop moments."

Zelman Symphony Orchestra, Arts Centre Melbourne and The Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas cordially invite you to experience No Friend but the Mountains, A Symphonic Song Cycle DATE: Sunday 21 March 2021, 5.00pm VENUE: Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Kings Domain Gardens, Linlithgow Ave, Melbourne VIC 3000 Presented by Zelman Symphony, Arts Centre Melbourne and The Wheeler Centre World Premiere of No Friend but the Mountains: A Symphonic Song Cycle By Australian Composer Luke Styles, Text by Behrouz Boochani Thumbed on a phone, smuggled out in thousands of text messages. The near impossibility of its existence. On Nauru and Manus Island, they live in a zoo of cruelty. No Friend but the Mountains, Behrouz Boochani's multi-award winning book which chronicles the perilous journeys of asylum seekers and their forced detention on Manus Island, is the inspiration for this Symphonic Song Cycle by prolific Australian composer, Luke Styles. Boochani, a Kurdish-Iranian journalist, writer and film-maker, penned his book in secret in Farsi on a mobile phone as a series of hundreds of text messages. He opened up the hidden world of detention, shone a light on the conditions endured by detainees on Manus and exposed a brutal system ostensibly designed to deter other asylum seekers while breaking those caught in it. To open the event, Behrouz Boochani will appear in conversation via video reflecting on this new adaptation of his story.
