David Helfgott in Recital presented by Byron Music Society at Byron Theatre


“David Helfgott’s brilliant and effortlessly executed playing infused the auditorium with an electric atmosphere which had built even before the almost capacity audience entered the venue. ‘Spellbinding’‘stupendous’‘breathtaking’ were just some of the adjectives used to describe a performance which mesmerized the audience to silence as the maestro unveiled his mastery.”

This account of Helfgott’s playing in Adelaide last February, could really describe any of his performances in recent years. In his hands the music always lives, in the moment, always new, always electrifying. His staggering technique, allied with his intense penetration of the musical meaning, is something audiences all over Europe and Australia find irresistible.

In this forthcoming recital for the BMS, he will showcase all of this and this concert will inaugurate the first season since Covid shut down concerts for most of 2020. Don’t miss it!
