THIS WEEK 25th August//31st August

Hello!! As you may have gathered I was away last weekend (in Melbourne!) but sadly have no musical adventures to report, except for spotting an interesting busker in the dreary rains and chill that is Melbourne – I took a video and will endeavor to upload it soon, but as luck had it there was nothing much happening in Melbourne’s classical Music scene last weekend – the week before the Melbourne Symphony had some concerts but I could not find a single concert to attend in the days I spent there (do any musical things happen there? i jest, but I would like to have known if there was something good on) – but I did get to spend a few lovely evenings with Britten and his Cello Suites! But once back in Perth I did attend the UWA VOSE concerto competition finals, and violinist Elia McCracken took out first prize with the Barber Violin Concerto.

But back in Perth this coming week is looking excellent as WASO prepares for the second part of their Beethoven festival – I do hope to attend the Pastoral symphony myself – the reviews so far have been pretty complimentary. For something a bit different the MSS is presenting a composition concert later in the week.
