“Leading a beautifully warm lyrical interpretation of the Mozart concerto, stylish and technically immaculate pianist Daniel de Borah ..gave the material plenty of colour and feeling” – Adelaide Advertiser, Concert with ASO, June 2017

One of Port Fairy’s favourite performers continues his exploration of the music of Schumann with this double bill of cherished works. Beginning with Of Foreign Lands and People, a morceau used famously in the Australian classic film My Brilliant Career, and also containing Traumerei, Kinderszenen’s 13 movements were described by Schumann himself as “nothing more than delicate hints for execution and interpretation”. Their simplicity and delicacy is then contrasted with the monumental Kreisleriana – Schumann’s dedication to a character created by E.T.A. Hoffmann – the German writer, composer and caricaturist whose stories also inspired Delibes’s Coppelia and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker as well as the opera The Tales of Hoffmann by Offenbach.
