McCallum + Helyard: “The Evolution of the Piano”
5 July @ 18:00 - 19:00$40 – $50
‘McCallum and Helyard pair perfectly at the keyboard." (Glam, Adelaide) Their performance in Primrose Potter Salon takes audiences on a journey, tracing the piano’s metamorphosis from a straight-strung instrument of great clarity and transparency to a cross-strung marvel of unified power and tone.
The duo presents a stunning repertoire of Beethoven’s Moonlight sonata, Mozart’s Sonata in B-flat major, Schubert’s ‘Fantasie’ in F minor for four hands, Liszt’s Consolation No. 3, Schubert’s ‘Marche Militaire’ for four hands, and Debussy’s Petite suite. An illustrated lecture contrasting the twentieth-century Steinway and the nineteenth-century Walter & Sons, and Graf fortepianos.
