A Weekend with Wispelwey

Published On: Fri 09 December



We welcome internationally acclaimed cellist, Pieter Wispelwey to Australia for three unforgettable regional festival appearances in Dunkeld and Margaret River. Wispelwey’s playing, described by The Guardian as “…at once supremely lyrical and furiously intense” is unforgettable when experienced up-close in the intimate setting of some of Australia’s most charming regional venues.

With regular recital appearances in the world’s finest concert halls, including London’s Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Berlin’s Konzerthaus and the Lincoln Center in New York, Wispelwey has established a reputation as one of the most charismatic recitalists on the circuit.

“I first heard Pieter Wispelwey perform with the ACO when I was a young student in Brisbane and was blown away by his superb artistry. To this day, he remains one of my favourite cellists in the world. Every time I hear him play, I am spellbound by his imaginative and deeply personal approach to making music. He also happens to be one of the nicest guys in the business! It is a dream come true to have the opportunity to perform alongside a musician I have revered for decades.” Dale Barltrop.
