Noosa Music Society is bringing one of Australia’s most loved pianists, Simon Tedeschi, back to Noosa for their first 2019 concert. This year’s performance features an array of spectacular piano solos from the heartbreaking lyricism of Schubert, the romance of Chopin, the excitement of Gershwin, to the visionary dissonance of Prokofiev, and the haunting sonorities of local composer Robert Melbourne.
Simon Tedeschi is quite often described by respected critics and musical peers as one of the finest artists in the world making the young pianist’s mark on music both undeniable and admirable. Tedeschi first performed a Mozart Piano Concerto at age 9 in the Sydney Opera House. The versatility and scope of Tedeschi’s appeal is exemplified by having shared the stage with numerous acclaimed musicians, including conductor Alan Gilbert, soprano Yvonne Kenny, jazz luminary James Morrison and Larry Adler, the legendary Harmonica player who called Tedeschi ‘the greatest pianist he ever heard.’ At age 13, Tedeschi gave a private recital to the iconic Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti.
Simon’s profile has permeated to other art forms, most notably as the subject in Cherry Hood’s striking portrait of Tedeschi that won the 2002 Archibald Prize. He is also attached to the Oscar-winning movie ‘Shine’, playing the hands of acclaimed pianist David Helfgott and was a regular guest on ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks.
Simon Tedeschi will perform at Good Shepherd Lutheran College, 115 Eumundi Road, Noosaville on Saturday 6 July at 3.30pm
