Tuesday 30 October 2012

7.30 for 8.00PM (drinks and canapés on arrival)

Savage Club, 12-16 Bank Place, Melbourne

Adventurer, composer and heart breaker, William Vincent Wallace, was the first great musician to visit Australia. He founded a Music Academy and the first Australian Music festival in 1835 before conquering the world with his opera Maritana, which began life on the verandah of the Bush Inn in Norfolk, Tasmania. His piano works are dazzling in their variety, invention, wit, humour and charm with UK-based Australian pianist Rosemary Tuck celebrating Wallace’s bicentenary and launching her new CD on Naxos.
