Details

Daniel de Borah is one of Australia’s foremost pianists, highly sought after as a solo recitalist, collaborative pianist and concerto soloist.

In 2017 Daniel welcomes two of Australia’s most compelling singers, Greta Bradman and Andrew Goodwin, to explore the rich and diverse worlds of German and Russian song.

Inspired by a love of Russian song nurtured during their shared years of study at the St Petersburg Conservatoire, this celebrated duo present a luscious program of romances by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. Completing the program is Benjamin Britten’s haunting setting of verses by Pushkin, The Poet’s Echo.

‘The growing synergy between tenor Andrew Goodwin and pianist Daniel de Borah has been one of the most exciting developments on the Australian performance scene in recent years. Goodwin must be one of the finest Lieder singers performing on the festival circuit today.’ Limelight magazine
