F S Kelly Sheet Music. Composed over 100 years ago.
A celebration in words & music celebrating the exceptional life of an Australian war hero, an Olympic gold medallist, and an Australian musical genius "“ Composer, Frederick Septimus Kelly "“ featuring words from his diaries as well performances of his beautiful pastoral music by an ensemble lead by Christopher Latham.

Carrillo Gantner, son of Four Winds' founder Nielma Gantner, will read excerpts from Kelly's travelling diaries, which talk of his time in the Bermagui area. You will also hear some of the first modern-day performances of his works composed 100 years ago, performed by five superb musicians led by Christopher Latham (violin) who was previously Artistic Director of Four Winds. Carrillo and Christopher will be joined by Tamara Anna Cislowska (piano), Louise Page (soprano), Christina Wilson (mezzo), and Alan Hicks (piano). Kelly's music reflects the early 20th Century 'pastoral' style. It is highly melodic and reminiscent of British composes like R Vaughan-Williams and Elgar.

Fredrick Kelly was mainly educated in England and Germany and was a friend of the great French composer Maurice Ravel who championed Kelly's music. Kelly was one of the first world war's most active creators, writing music throughout the Gallipoli and Somme campaigns in a true race against time; he was killed at the Somme in 1916.

Don't miss this beautiful afternoon of words and music in the Windsong Pavilion.
