COMPASSION – LIOR AND NIGEL WESTLAKE
Sublime songs and soul-stirring music
Lior is one of Australia’s most successful singer-songwriters, renowned for his beautiful voice and songs that radiate truth and sincerity. Nigel Westlake is one of Australia’s finest composers, creating profoundly evocative music that touches the soul. The talented duo will pair up for a one night only performance on 7 February at the Festival Theatre.
Lior and Nigel Westlake’s collaboration, Compassion, is a symphony of songs that will unite the soulful power of Lior’s voice with the radiance and vivid drama of Westlake’s orchestral style. Their theme is the wisdom of compassion expressed through ancient Hebrew and Arabic writings and their musical artistry. Their recently released album of the same name debuted at number one on the ARIA Classical chart.
With orchestral arrangements of Lior’s own songs, including This Old Love, Bedouin Song and Daniel, and backed by the award winning Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, this promises to be an unforgettable concert of authentic and life-affirming music.
Lior burst on to the Australian music scene in 2005 with his stunning debut album Autumn Flow. The album became one of the most successful independent debuts in Australian history with sales surpassing Platinum. A swag of accolades followed, amongst them three ARIA nominations (including ‘Best Male Artist’), as well as Triple J’s prestigious J Award nomination for ‘Album of the Year.’
Nigel Westlake’s career in music has spanned more than three decades. He has toured the world with ballet companies, a circus troupe, chamber music groups, fusion bands and orchestras to London, New York and Rome. His award compositions for the Beatrix Potter biopic Miss Potter won ‘Feature Film Score of the Year’ and ‘Best Soundtrack Album’ at the 2007 APRA / AGSC Screen Music Awards. Westlake’s film credits also include Babe, which he took home a Golden Globe Award in 1996 for ‘Best Feature Musical/Comedy’, Children of the Revolution and Antartica.
Together Lior and Westlake create an inspiring musical experience not to be missed.
