Camerata & Lior: Compassion

Fri 2 Sept

Camerata & Lior: Compassion

A collaboration that has been years in the making: leading Australian singer/songwriter Lior and Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra

Lior and renowned Australian composer Nigel Westlake’s award-winning work, Compassion, has transfixed audiences since it was created in 2013. Drawing on profound and poetic insights of Islam and Judaism, the piece is an ever-timely reminder for kindness and the values shared across belief systems.

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.
