Divine Alchemy delves into the realm of beauty emerging from unexpected sources, presenting a musical journey forged in the crucible of adversity. It casts a radiant spotlight on human resilience when faced with life’s trials, uncovering a wellspring of inspiration that has given rise to numerous great masterpieces. At its core, this program explores the concept of transformation, akin to the art of alchemy, where adversity serves as the raw material that reveals a hidden inner beauty.

The program showcases Konstantin Shamray in Mozart’s Piano Concerto in C minor, celebrated by many as one of the greatest compositions for the pianoforte. Guest violin soloist, Amalia Hall makes a welcome return in the Australian premiere of Elegie, a profoundly moving piece by the French composer Thibaut Vuillermet and a new chamber transcription of Debussy’s Violin Sonata.

The concert also presents Bach’s exquisite Oboe Concerto in G minor, highlighted by its breathtaking Adagio movement and a unique work commissioned for the SXS Didgeridoo Commissioning Project, inspired by the life of Wakka Wakka Elder, Maureen Williams.
