October has been a busy month in our Brisbane store with a myriad of events in collaboration with external organisations. We were fortunate to have Angela Hewitt give a public Masterclass with four talented young pianists from Brisbane. Participants included Akari Komoto, William Shi, Julian Wade and Sine Winther with repertoire ranging from from a Bach invention to Lizst Hungarian Rhapsody. Partnered with Musica Viva, with whom Angela Hewitt was touring nationally, the 60 to 70 attendees were thrilled to be a part of a memorable experience.
In the same week, Declassified Music presented an exciting program featuring pianist Sonia Lifschitz, Leah Scholles, percussion and Lina Andonovska, flute. It was a great way to round out a series of quality chamber music. In 2014, the space at 60 Commercial Road, Newstead will be centred between the James Street (New Farm) and Gasworks (Newstead) dining and shopping precincts. It is also only a block away from three new distinct boutique breweries.
