Rising star cellist Benett Tsai will join the Willoughby Symphony in a performance of Dvořák’s Concerto for Cello alongside Kate Moore’s new Requiem in an Australian premiere.
Considered to be one of the supreme concerto for cello, Dvořák’s final concerto will spring to life with the stellar talents of Benett with the Willoughby Symphony. At only 15 years of age, Benett’s performances have been described as “assured, intense and virtuosic”. In 2016 he became the youngest ever winner of the Fine Music National Young Virtuoso Award and in 2018 was the youngest ever semi-finalist of the ABC Young Performers Award.
Willoughby Symphony’s composer-in-residence for 2019, the internationally celebrated Australian composer Kate Moore presents a major new work that celebrates light, the vividness of life, revelation and transformation in Lux Aeterna: VIVID. Based in the Netherlands, Kate is an Australian-Dutch musician and composer of new music who has obtained a master’s degree from The Royal Conservatory of The Hague and was awarded a Ph.D. from The University of Sydney. In 2017, she was awarded the recipient of the Matthijs Vermeulen Prize, the most prestigious Dutch prize for composers.
