Australian Festival of Chamber Music – Advanced Winterschool

In late July/early August 2016 I had the privilege of participating in the Australian Festival of Chamber Music’s Advanced Winterschool.  This was a fabulous experience – some highlights for me were pianist Sa Chen’s incredible and compelling performances, page-turning for artistic director Piers Lane and Irish pianist Finghin Collins’ sparkling and brilliant performance of Dave Brubeck’s Points on Jazz, and coachings and masterclasses with musicians from all over Australia and the world.  I would like to thank my chamber music colleagues Clementine Isaacson (violin) and Nicholas Kennedy (cello) for our collaborations during the week up there.
