TRACE THE LIFE AND CAREER OF MOZART…

With love, Amadeus shines the spotlight once more on one of classical music’s enduring heroes, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, in a thrilling fifth collaboration between two of Australia’s leading artists from theatre and classical music, John Bell AO OBE and Simon Tedeschi.

As Australian theatre legend John Bell traces the life and career of Mozart, reading extensively from his private letters along with comments by some of his contemporaries, extraordinary concert pianist Simon Tedeschi performs a soundtrack to the young composer’s life.

Experience a range of Mozart’s exhilarating music for piano, including some of his best-loved works such as his Fantasia in D minor (K.397), Twinkle Twinkle variations, and his Rondo Alla Turca (Turkish march).

“A fun night and impressive performance… entertaining and light-hearted, presenting the great Jazz Age through the lens of music and witty conversations.”
– CutCommon, 2020

“There were too many highlights to mention… a memorable event where two simple recital formats, spoken words from the stage and solo piano were presented in perfect harmony.”
– Classic Melbourne, 2018

Starring John Bell AO OBE (director, narrator) and Simon Tedeschi (piano, narrator)
Music and letters by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

SUNSHINE COAST CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

The Sunshine Coast Chamber Music Festival intelligently reimagines chamber music in a contemporary context, integrating site-specific, cross-form, and cross-cultural elements.  Each year the festival aims to present an innovative program of bespoke events staged in stunning natural locations and intimate venues across the Sunshine Coast.

John Bell AO OBE is one of Australia’s most acclaimed actors and directors, founder of the Bell Shakespeare Company, and has achieved several honours including numerous Helpmann Awards and Sydney Theatre Awards and nominations plus a number of prestigious Lifetime Achievement awards, including a National Trust Living National Treasure award.

Simon Tedeschi is one of Australia’s most renowned classical pianists, recipient of the Young Performer of the Year Award and a Centenary Medal (Australia), the Creativity Foundation’s Legacy Award (USA) and a first prize in the Royal Overseas League Competiton (UK). Remarkably versatile across genres, Simon performs as soloist with major orchestras, from Sydney Opera House children’s theatre to shows with John Bell, from regional towns and conservatoriums to Abu Dhabi, Shanghai and New York’s Carnegie Hall.
