Saturday 13th May at 7pm
Featuring Australia’s favourite flautist, Jane Rutter and violinist and Artistic Director of the Gallipoli Symphony, Christopher Latham - both recently honoured with France’s cultural honour, as Chevalier de L’Ordre des Arts et Lettres - and ARIA award-winning pianist and Classic FM
presenter, Tamara-Anna Cislowka and
cellist David Pereira.
Be transported to France in the last days of the Belle Epoque, in the story of the iconic artist CLAUDE MONET losing his greatest gift – his ability to see.
Facing the death of everything he loves, everything meaningful to him, Monet
creates more work than any other artist during WW1, as he looks back on the world that is being lost – “le monde perdu”.
This concert of sublime visual projections and French music brings together the
paintings Monet created at Giverny
during the Great War including his Japanese Bridges, Water Lilies, Weeping Willows, and the Alley of Roses, alongside music written in 1914-1918 by serving or volunteering French composers such as Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Charles Kœchlin and Lili Boulanger.
The interlacing of sublime French music & masterpieces will make for an event that will lift the audience to new heights and stay with us all for many years to come.
