Marshall-Luck + Fujimura: Kelly, Horsley & Elgar
Sat 26 August @ 17:00 - 18:30$45 – $50
ENGLISH MUSIC FESTIVAL IN AUSTRALIA 2
One of the highlights of the EMFA program is Frederick Septimus Kelly's Violin Sonata in G Major Gallipoli, which will be performed by Rupert Marshall-Luck (violin) and Kenji Fujimura (piano).
Born in Sydney in 1881, Kelly moved to England when he was twelve years old to attend Eton College and went on to study at Oxford and in Frankfurt. He won a gold medal in rowing at the 1908 Olympics, but his passion was always music and he devoted his time to becoming a great musician. Kelly signed up as the First World War broke out and was posted to Gallipoli in the Royal Naval Division and it was in the trenches that he composed this violin sonata for the Hungarian violin virtuoso, Jelly D’Arányi.
