David Helfgott in Recital
The pianist who stole our hearts, performs the music that captured his soul. The inspiration for the Academy Award® winning movie Shine, David Helfgott is one of Australia’s most prolific and treasured musicians. Almost 20 years on from the film that catapulted him onto the world stage, Helfgott continues to tour internationally to critical acclaim and enchant audiences worldwide with his passionate musical interpretations and triumphant personal story.
Now, following sell-out recitals in 2012, Helfgott embarks on his most extensive national tour in more than 15 years, performing to audiences in 23 venues in both regional and capital cities. Performing a program of some of the most enchanting Romantic piano repertoire, a highlight will be Helfgott’s staple performance of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, which he performed at the 1997 Academy Awards to an audience of Hollywood’s biggest names, and a televised audience of millions.
