Clink hosts cello per­for­mance

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Gizelle Ghidella

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.
