L’Amore, Labassa and Ludwig - Italian Arias, Love Songs and Orix Duo is a unique double recital in the National Trust’s lavish 19th century mansion Labassa. Experience the opulent architectural features and impressive interiors of Labassa as you enjoy two different, contrasting 40 - 45 minute recitals in the one afternoon!
Mezzo-soprano Sally-Anne Russell, tenor Michael Petruccelli with pianist Darrryl Coote perform Italian arias and love songs in the Reception Room, while the outstanding young musicians of Orix Duo - Ye Jin Choi (cello) and Kevin Suherman (piano) - present Beethoven, Martinu and Casals in the Music Room. Each magnificently restored room seats only 40 people, thus each recital will be performed twice; after interval the audience will swap rooms to hear their second recital. Both rooms are at opposite corners of the ground floor, separated by doors and the entrance hall, so each audience will not be disturbed by sound from the other recital.
