Event Details

Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra will at last collaborate with leading Australian singer/songwriter Lior in this moving program featuring Compassion, by Nigel Westlake and Lior, and a selection of Lior’s songs arranged for string orchestra. Premiering in 2013 and subsequently winning multiple awards, Compassion is an ethereal and mesmerising song cycle, drawing on profound and poetic insights of Islam and Judaism. The program will also include Australian composer Robert Davidson’s From to Here, originally commissioned by Queensland Ballet and recorded by Camerata for Rani Luther’s From. To. Here. This stunning work features the attractive combination of piano and strings and takes the listener on a journey through emotional valleys of excitement, deep pathos, and searing beauty. Don’t miss this beautiful meeting of musical hearts and minds in a moving and heartfelt performance.
