Dear Friends and Members of the Sydney Schubert Society,


I am very excited to be able to invite you to the Schubert Society’s “Grand Schubertiade” on August 16 at the Goethe  Institute  when  the  splendid  pianist Geoffrey  Saba will  be  joined  by the  young  Australian  tenor Dominic Walsh for a unique double recital and extended afternoon of Schubert’s music. These two exciting musicians will  perform  a  massive, two-recital program of music including Beethoven’s song cycle An  die ferne Geliebte and Schubert’s Schöne Müllerin D 795. Their lieder recital will be followed by Geoffrey Saba’s solo piano performance including Schubert’s Impromptus (D 935) and his Piano Sonatas B major (D 575) and A major (D 959). It promises to be a Schubertiade of historic dimensions in more sense than one and I hope you can be there to enjoy an authentic experience of Schubert’s music.


Dominic  Walsh  is  a  young  Australian  tenor  born  in  Queensland  but  now  resident  in  London.  He  studied  at the  Queensland  Conservatorium  and  the  Guildhall  School  of  Music  where  he  received  the  Guildhall  School Trust Scholarship and the Chairman’s prize upon graduating with a Masters degree. He was a member of the Queensland Opera’s Young Artist Program and has recently worked with English Touring Opera, appeared as Ferrando  in Cosi  fan  tutti for  Clonter  Opera  and  is  scheduled  to  appear  with  Wexford  Festival  Opera  in October. Australian  born Pianist  Geoffrey  Saba  makes  a  welcome  return  visit  to  the  Schubert  Society. A celebrated international recitalist  and  recording  artist,  Geoffrey  has  a  special  affinity  for  the  music  of Schubert.  He  has  performed  and  completed  some of  Schubert’s  unfinished  piano  sonatas  based  on completions  by  Sydney  musicologist  and  founder  of  Musica  Viva,  W.  A.  Dullo  and  he  has  recorded  several CDs with Schubert’s music. His performance of Schubert’s piano music was enthusiastically  supported  andenjoyed by members and friends when he visited the Sydney Schubert Society last in 2013.


The Grand Schubertiade will commence at 2.30 pm on August 16 at the Goethe Institute in Woollahra and is projected to finish at 6.30 pm with the solo-piano recital commencing at around 4.30 pm. I hope you will be able  to  invite  many  of  your  friends  and  fellow  Schubert  enthusiasts  to  this  unique Schubert  event – the biggest and boldest in the history of the Sydney Schubert Society and certainly a wonderful expression of our purpose and comprehensive tribute to Schubert’s genius. I look very much forward to seeing you on August 16 at the Goethe Institute and to also welcoming you to the AGM of the Sydney Schubert Society which will be held in the break between the two recitals.


Cordially Yours,


Goetz RichterPresident,

Sydney Schubert Society Inc.
