Clink hosts cello performance
ANTHONY Albrecht, a graduate of the eminent Juilliard School in New York, will present a program of cello music tomorrow night (Friday, August 4) at the Clink Theatre.
Mr Albrecht, from Newcastle, NSW, has travelled across Australia sharing his love for music in a unique way.
“I try and provide audiences with history, cultural context and emotional context,” Mr Albrecht said.
“I think music is a really important part of the cultural history of humanity and it’s something that touches the soul.”
He will play two solo suites by Bach, compositions by Bach contemporaries and work by an Australian composer.
“The Australian piece is a wonderful surprise for the audience in terms of what the cello can do,” he said. “The show gives an interesting perspective on the history of the instrument, its origins and a contemporary angle.”
Mr Albrecht hopes to encourage the young people of Douglas to embrace classical music. Catch him at his ‘Bach to the Bush’ performance at the Clink Theatre tomorrow night. Admission is $30 for adults, $25 for concession, and $10 for students.
