Gerringong Music Club is delighted to host celebrated international pianist Penelope Thwaites on;
Sunday 17 February in Gerringong Town Hall at 2pm
Penelope will be presenting ‘Musical Personalities’, an illustrated piano recital of works by Bach, Beethoven, Grainger, Chopin and more. Her performance will explore how, behind the great and beautiful works of the piano repertoire, lie real lives and real experience: bizarre, tragic, comic or joyful. The people who gave musical expression to these emotions are a constant source of fascination.
Penelope Thwaites made her debut at London’s Wigmore Hall in 1974 and her reflections have evolved throughout a long international career. Details are at www.impulse-music.co.uk/penelopethwaites.
Born in Chester UK and resident in London for most of her life, Penelope grew up in Australia, winning first place on graduation in Music from Melbourne University. She has wide experience not only as a pianist but as composer, writer and editor, broadcaster and music festival curator. She is recognised internationally as a leading exponent of Percy Grainger’s music with over 260 tracks recorded, and as editor of ‘The New Percy Grainger Companion’.
Tickets for the concert are $25 at the door for visitors.
