For the first event of the year, the Richard Wagner Society of S. Aust. welcomes back an Honorary Member, the Russian/Australian pianist Konstantin Shamray. Many members would have met Konstantin at previous events, while virtually all must have seen or heard him perform in the last few years. Currently a Lecturer in Piano at the Conservatorium of Adelaide, where he recently completed a PhD,
Konstantin has, like most other performers, recently been restricted to living and performing locally. He has offered to speak about Wagnerism in Russia, a topic he has touched on before, and has also requested the use of a piano. It promises to be a very stimulating and enjoyable afternoon, so invite any of your friends who would also be interested. And, although we’ve booked a larger venue, numbers are still restricted, so please let us know how many members and friends will be attending.
Richard Wagner died in Venice on 13 February 1883, so this will also be the Society Wake for 2021. There will be a short commemoration of Wagner’s life at afternoon tea.
