Lunchtime Classical Concert, Wednesday 30th May, 12.15pm - John Granger Fisher

John Granger Fisher has established himself as one of Australia’s leading concert pianists.  It has been said of him, “His virtuosity knocked us over. More than that, he simply moved us to tears.”

The concert will open with 3 popular piano transcriptions, namely: the Bach/Busoni - Chorale-Prelude ‘Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ’ (I call to You, Lord Jesus Christ), the very beautiful, Wagner/Liszt - Isolde's Liebestod, and Schumann/Liszt – Widmung.

These will be followed by Brahms’s virtuosic Variations on a Theme of Paganini Op 35 Book I.

Finally we will hear Preludes numbers 2 and 6 from Rachmaninov’s opus 23 set, followed by 7 of the most famous Chopin Etudes - Opus 10 numbers 1, 6 and 11, and Opus 25 numbers 1, 5, 7 and 12.

This will be an exceptional concert, filled with wonderful melodies and stunning piano playing.
