For those who are passionate about classical music, you will know that there is nothing better than hearing a top artist perform.
And when that top artist is also young, daring and possibly one of the finest musicians of his generation, you know that you are in for a great night of music.
Enter Simon Tedeschi. The Sydney-based composer is something of a teen idol in classical music circles.
In fact, the talented performer already has a string of awards to his name, including the prestigious Symphony Australia Young Performers Award, a recording contract with Sony Music and movie appearances in Shine (where he played the hands), as well as an Archibald-winning portrait of himself – and this all happened before his 21st birthday.
Tasmanian audiences will have a chance to hear works from some of the world’s best composers – Schubert, Rachmaninoff and Gershwin – played by one of the industry’s rising stars for one night only this August.
Ticket prices start at $42 to $72 for adults and the performance will take place as part of the Musica Viva Tasmania festival – which is showing at Hobart Town Hall. For more information, you can visit the Musica Viva website.
