Anthony Marwood and Aleksandar Madžar in Adelaide

Anthony Marwood

Anthony Marwood and Aleksandar Madžar performed the first concert of their Australian tour in Adelaide last night, and already the positive responses are coming in. Musica Viva’s Director of Artistic Planning, Concerts, reported:

“Lovely concert. The audience genuinely demanded the encore, which was the intermezzo from Schumann’s third sonata (so we’re in for a treat at Huntington where they’ll play the whole thing.) It’s a huge program but a really beautiful one and there’s much pleasure in just enjoying the skill and unspoken communication of these extraordinary people. Gordon’s piece has an ethereal lucidity about it in their hands, they can play really softly! Some of the cadences in the Beethoven made me think of a gymnast landing some ridiculous vault without a wobble. The Schubert managed to be amazing and totally understated.”

On Twitter, one audience member claimed that Gordon Kerry had “out out Debussy-ed Debussy” while a patron in the foyer was heard to remark “Marwood and Madžar play with such refinement, finesse & imagination!”
