The Literary Salon - Tom Service

Music as Alchemy, 7:30pm Moorcroft House, Lismore Roadbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The mute choreography of great conductors has fascinated and frustrated musicians and music-lovers for centuries.

Tom Service looks inside the rehearsal rooms of some of the most inspirational orchestral partnerships in the world. He looks at how orchestras can be inspired to the heights of expressive possibility by their maestros, or flabbergasted who doesn’t make a sound should be elevated to demi-god-like status by the public. Expect gossip and intrigue, human and musical stories.
