3MBS Marathon Concert 4 – Visionary

3MBS Marathon

Presented by 3MBS Melbourne 103.5FM


Cheetham and Cassomenos ignite their joint creative chemistry.

Deborah Cheetham Fraillon AO and Stefan Cassomenos ignite their joint creative chemistry, especially for this concert with a set of songs including one of Deborah’s own. Wilma Smith joins them for Strauss’s poignantly beautiful Morgen. They pave the way for a Marathon highlight, a performance of Beethoven’s epic last piano sonata Op.111 by Melbourne’s own international Beethoven master, Paavali Jumppanen. He calls Op.111 ‘One of the true wonders of life’.
