Selby & Friends | Iconic ‘Fathers’ – Adelaide

16 July 2023 @ 2:15 pm - 4:00 pm AEST

Selby & Friends is delighted to welcome back Natalie Chee and Julian Smiles after a Covid- interrupted tour in 2022.

In this special program, Kathy and her friends present three iconic, trailblazing composers whose influence exploded previous conceptions to pave an entirely new path forward.

Haydn was a prolific piano trio composer who literally created our idea of the genre. Dvořák, the great Czech composer and father of nationalism in music, made it possible for composers who followed to revel in their mother tongue and express it through music. And the giant Viennese/American composer, Schoenberg, changed the face of music entirely with his revolutionary approach to harmony in music. A stunning concert presented by three of Australia’s finest artists.

Natalie Chee, violin
