Forever Glasshouse. Season 2018.
DIRECT FROM CARNEGIE HALL
Presented by Glasshouse Port Macquarie & Tenacious C
Expect to revise any preconceived notions you have about classical music when internationally acclaimed Steinway artist Julian Gargiulo makes his Glasshouse debut, direct from Carnegie Hall!
The man with the fro-like mane wanted to be a rock star when he was a kid but grew up to become a classical pianist instead. But, as he says, his hair kept dreaming.
Described as “Saturday Night Live with a piano”, Julian will hold you spellbound as he takes you through a stunning program including Debussy and Rimsky-Korsakov, but not forgetting the usual suspects Beethoven and Chopin in-between sharing his life stories and experiences from stages all around the world.
Combining rigorous Russian conservatory training with an informal style of presenting classical music, Julian has received standing ovations on both sides of the Atlantic and is not to be missed.
... he’s just brilliant ... there are not enough words to describe the genius behind him ... because when he sits down and plays you are watching a Beethoven or Chopin ... He’s just magnificent.
