Tamara-Anna Cislowska & Gerard Willems Recital

From Beethoven to Gershwin, a spellbinding evening of illuminating solo’s and duets intertwined performed on two grand pianos by Australia’s leading proponents for the piano – Tamara Anna Cislowska and Gerard Willems.

One of Australia’s most renowned, ARIA award-winning concert pianists, Tamara-Anna Cislowska has performed and recorded world-wide to critical acclaim as a solo recitalist, chamber musician and concerto soloist. Earning international prizes such as the Rovere d’Oro, and touring internationally as cultural ambassador for Australia, Tamara’s accolades include ABC Young Performer of the Year, the Freedman Fellowship and the 2015 ARIA award for ‘Best Classical Album’.

Gerard Willems is an Australian living legend of the piano whose performance and teaching career spans Australia, Asia and Europe. Recognised as a pre-eminent specialist of the first Viennese school, he has garnered awards for his recordings of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas, five piano concertos with Sinfonia Australis, and the ‘Diabelli Variations’. In 2012, he was made a Member of the Order of Australia for services to the arts.

Singularly outstanding and together a tour de force, their virtuosic command of the piano delivers a fierce exposé of harmony, romance, elegance and a shared passion for music that transcends the senses.
