Renowned Australian pianists visit South Africa
 


The Australian High Commission is proud to be supporting the current visit to South Africa by internationally acclaimed Australian piano duo Mr Coady Green and Mr Leigh Harrold.

In addition to recent concerts at the Harare International Festival of the Arts, Swellendam and Somerset West, the duo performed on the evening of 1 June at the residence of the Australian High Commissioner to South
Africa, Ms Ann Harrap, in Pretoria.
Following a performance at the University of the Free State in the first week of June, their tour will culminate on 12 June with a performance at
the Linder Auditorium in Johannesburg, where they will perform two works for piano duet, as well as piano quintets with the Odeion String Quartet,considered to be one of South Africa’s most accomplished string ensembles.
More information regarding the 12 June performance is available at: http://www.jms.org.za
Coady Green is acknowledged as a major rising talent on the international music scene, while Leigh Harrold is one of Australia’s most sought-after pianists, enjoying a reputation as a musician of rare talent and intelligence. These two pianists have won almost every prestigious cultural award possible in Australia and together they form a fine piano duo.
Coady Green regularly performs internationally and most recently has given critically acclaimed recitals in Europe and the Asia-Pacific in venues such as the Sydney Opera House, the Beijing and Shanghai Concert Halls the Salzburg Mozarteum and St Martin in the Fields, London. Since winning the Adelaide Critics’ Circle prize for Best Emerging Artist of 2005, Leigh Harrold has performed extensively throughout Europe, North America and Australia as both soloist and chamber musician, including concerts at Australia House in London, the Royal Academy of Music, the Mozarteum in Salzburg and concerto engagements with many Australian orchestras.
Part of the Australian High Commission’s mandate is to promote cultural exchange between Australian and southern African artists, musicians and  film-makers, with the aim of promoting deeper cooperation between our
artistic communities and expanding people-to-people links.
The Australian High Commission is pleased to be able to support Coady Green and Leigh Harrold’s visit to South Africa through our cultural exchange and public diplomacy program.
