Tempus Duo (www.tempusduo.com) brings together the powerful combination of New York-based celebrated pianist Lisa Moore, with Brisbane-based cellist and Artistic Director Trish O’Brien.
Formed by chance for a performance at the Tyalgum 2018 Music Festival in NSW, these two musicians were brought together for a performance of Alfred Schnittke’s incredibly profound, moving and dynamic first sonata for cello and piano. After one rehearsal it was clear that these two minds were meant to perform together, and the concert’s unanimous standing ovation and cheering after their electric performance delivered that point.
