Event Details

Diana Weston is a pianist and harpsichordist living in Sydney. She directs an early music group called Thoroughbass which regularly gives concerts in Sydney and rural NSW and which has a number of recordings to its credit. Thoroughbass is mostly all about music from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries but often music from the here-and-now creeps into their programs. It’s hard to tell which is more popular. Diana loves the connection and intimacy with her audience that a small venue allows and enjoys telling something about the process of how the music came about. Diana was delighted to discover the beautiful Lipp piano at the Broken Hill Art Gallery when she stayed recently, her husband being an occasional Flying Doctor. She will play a collection of light-hearted and whimsical pieces by living Australian composers, inspired by folk-tunes, dances, games and toys.
