Here’s a review from the I Love Mt Barker website:
Music In The Hills:
Recently, I was made aware of the concerts at the Prince of Wales Lodge in Mount Barker, and I was intrigued to come along to the most recent concert featuring Aleksandr Tsiboulski – one of Australia’s finest classical guitarists and Anne Horton on violin, who recently was a part of the Australian String Quartet.
Now let me just preface this and say that attending a classical music concert is not normally my first choice in activities.
My knowledge of the subject is limited, to say the least, and I certainly won’t attempt a full-scale review of the event.
In saying this, I must say that I was truly impressed by the world-class talent that played on Saturday Evening. Aleksandr Tsiboulski was simply amazing on the guitar and played beautifully – at times, incredibly, it seemed he was playing by feel only with his eyes shut!
Anne Horton played in duet with Mr. Tsiboulski, and her performance was equally as impressive. I have been told that seeing a classical guitarist and violin in duet is a rarity, and I feel privileged to have been a part of the audience.
The venue is The Prince of Wales Lodge and is located off Hutchinson Street. It provides a relaxing and refined setting for the enjoyment of world-class classical music. Set in the majestic and historic surrounds of the oldest Freemasons Lodge in the Hills – an evening at the Prince of Wales is an experience like no other.
Looking for something different to do? Make sure you get along to the next concert – they are held monthly.
