Thank you to those of you who voted for me in the recent poll for the 4MBS Treasured Queensland Classical Musician/Group. The poll closed last Friday, and I appreciated those of you who took the time to vote. Tune in to “My Musical Journey” on 4MBS Classic FM next Saturday, the 21st of October, from 8.10am to find out who the top five winners. This is also a special day as I’ll be conducting the Sinfonia of St Andrew’s and the Queensland University Music Society in selections from Weber’s Der Freischütz, and Cherubini’s moving Requiem in C minor. Thanks again, and hopefully I’ll see you soon. All the best.

September seems to be for me the month for important performance anniversaries, several of which I had undertaken with the Ady Ensemble.

I’ve been looking forward to this next concert for some time, and it will be a great delight to be working again with both organisations for this performance. Marking 200 years since it’s first performance, the Queensland University Music Society and the Sinfonia of St Andrew’s present Cherubini’s Requiem in C minor. Imitated by Brahms and Berlioz, admired by Schumann and Beethoven, this work was written in memory of King Louis XVI of France, who was executed in 1793.
