Concertante Ensemble is a highly motivated, professional string chamber orchestra with a core of 11 players, bound

together by a common vision - to bring exceptional quality

chamber music with Australian and international performers.

Following sellout concerts, Artistic Director and solo violinist Karina Moss Hollands and special guest artists Maggie Ferguson (Bandoneon), Francis Carreon (Piano) and Isabella Brown (Bass) present the popular and innovative EIGHT SEASONS.

Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’ meets Piazzolla’s ‘The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires’ in a stunning juxtaposition of musical styles, exemplifying the insistent rhythms and languid gestures of the Baroque and the sensual, abrupt mood changes of Latin American Tango.

Piazzolla’s distinctive music combines jazz & the Argentinian tango of his native land with classical forms and 20th Century

harmonic ideas. In the Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, he takes a tango-inspired work and combines it with elements easily recognizable from Vivaldi, also presenting a solo violin featured within an orchestral texture in highly virtuosic style.

Anna Karenina - Stage Russia

Anna Karenina - Stage Russia

Directed and choreographed by Angelica Cholina, this Vakhtangov Theatre production of ANNA KARENINA is a modern dance interpretation of Leo Tolstoy's classic novel, originally published in serial installments from 1875 to 1877 in the periodical The Russian Messenger. Telling the life story of the titular Anna, a St. Petersburg aristocrat, against the backdrop of late 19th century Russian society, Tolstoy's novel is widely considered a pinnacle in realist fiction.

Cholina strives to find the equivalent of Tolstoy's words in harmony and movement, as every gesture holds as much meaning as a word. The music of Alfred Schnittke helps to reveal the characters of the drama and their depth, together with elegance and mood corresponding to the amplitude of the novel.

Presented in Russian with English subtitles.

Based on the acclaimed book "History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier," DENIAL recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt's (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Cannes Award winner Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. Also starring two-time Academy Award nominee Tom Wilkinson, the film is directed by Emmy Award winner Mick Jackson ("Temple Grandin") and adapted for the screen by BAFTA and Academy Award nominated writer David Hare (THE READER). Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff.

Joanna Weinberg "The Piano Diaries"

Joanna Weinberg "The Piano Diaries"

The Piano Diaries is a song cycle about the journey of a piano from England to South Africa and subsequently to Australia. The piano belongs to the songwriter Joanna Weinberg, who inherited it from her grandmother and brought the piano with her when she came to Sydney in 1997.

Not having had lessons since she was a teenager in South Africa, she took up lessons in Sydney and found herself flooded with memories released by the process . These memories became The Piano Diaries, an intimate musical diary from a childhood which , from the age of nine, played out during the infamous Apartheid regime.

The songs range from a terrible incident witnessed during piano practice to the genesis of the instrument itself in the death of the elephant who lost his tusks for the keys .

The stories told within the songs move from the singer’s early childhood lived under the piano of two orchestral musicians in London to the songs written in the early days of immigration when the piano was damaged on the journey to Sydney. Intimate, personal , heart wrenching and funny, the Piano Diaries offers insight into the impact of political damage on the life of a young person and also into the process of leaving that world behind for a better life.

Viceroy's House in Delhi was the home of the British rulers of India. After 300 years, that rule was coming to an end. For 6 months in 1947, Lord Mountbatten, great grandson of Queen Victoria, assumed the post of the last Viceroy, charged with handing India back to its people.

The film's story unfolds within that great house. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants. As the political elite - Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi - converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of independent India, conflict erupted. A decision was taken to divide the country and create a new Muslim homeland: Pakistan. It was a decision whose consequences reverberate to this day.

The Cherry Orchard - Stage Russia

First produced in 1904 at The Moscow Art Theatre under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky, this production of Anton Chekhov's classic tale of cultural futility, starring Russian stage and screen legend Renata Litvinova, is more relevant today than it was over a hundred years ago. Adolf Shapiro's interpretation asks the question, where would the characters of this play live today years after their cherry orchard has been cut down? The answer, which lies in the material world created by set designer, David Borovsky, is, of course, on the stage.

A century later, this production brings The Cherry Orchard full circle, with its wandering band of characters never at peace, but finally back home.

Presented in Russian with English subtitles.
