AIPP Australian Insitute of Professional Photography exhibition is on at Floriade all weekend (n the Look n Learn Marquee, wherever that is).

this is one for all those people who can’t find any good art to buy. Last time I saw this lot exhibit there were amazing landscapes over a metre long, for around 200.00. They are as cheap as framed prints, and far nicer.

the residences of new female regime – the lodge and government house – are both open to the public on sunday. apparently the great unwashed are encouraged to take a picnic and enjoy the lawns…

There’s also a car show, featuring those low-rider utes that you see occasionally, you know the ones, they drive around on their sills and think it looks cool.

Anyway, I believe it’s taking place in a park opposite the National Library. I won’t be there, not my cup o’ tea.

Twilight concerts in spring…
Carl Rafferty gives you piano favourites…

Dear Music Lover,

This Friday and Saturday I’m giving a solo piano concert at historic St. John’s Church, Reid, featuring some of the best loved and most evocative romantic melodies. St John’s is the perfect place for you to enjoy this piano music…the wonderful 19th century interior and the fabulous acoustic will transport you to the age of Chopin and Liszt.

I’ve selected this special music, not only because I enjoy playing it so much, but because these melodies show the variety of colours and images that are the soul of romantic piano music.

You can hear a few snippets from this concert if you open the attachment.

Bach’s Arioso will relax you with a serene and contemplative mood. Beethoven’s fabulous Pathetique Sonata will stir you with its revolutionary fervour, while Chopin’s Grand Waltz will take you to the great ballrooms of Europe. Rachmaninoff’s dramatic C sharp minor Prelude offers a profound insight into the Russian soul. You’ll enjoy a sparkling Liszt study, and sumptuous impressionistic pieces by Debussy. I’ll finish this concert with some toe-tapping Ragtime by Scot Joplin.

I’m looking forward to playing for you.

Best wishes,

Carl Rafferty
