SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE RECITAL 29 OCTOBER 2016 AT 2 PM
David would love you to come and share three anniversaries with him on 29 October at the Opera House performance. It is twenty years since David gave his memorable 1996 record four sell-out recitals and the anniversary of Shine. An even longer anniversary is the 30 years since Andrew McKinnon started his long and successful career of touring David, and David would have so much joy in sharing these memorable occasions with you.
David Helfgott returns to screens on NETFLIX with HELLO I AM DAVID, a very moving film of his life on concert tour with the Rachmaninov Third Piano concerto.
This is a very touching, funny and uplifting film and a wonderfully sincere portrait of the pianist and catches his irresistible personality and his music. Not to be missed.
Check his tour schedule for performances in Europe and UK in 2017 of this wonderful concerto on duo pianos where the full beauty of the piano score shines through.
David had the great honour of being selected for the Performing Arts Walk with 17 other Australian performing to have a plaque installed on the walk-way to Hamer Hall in Melbourne. He felt very honoured to have received this recognition of his performances and the words he used for the plaque describing how he approaches performing were
I PLAY IN THE SPIRIT OF JOY, CARING, SHARING AND LOVE MUSIC IS MY LIFE AND MY PASSION.
It was a very proud day for him.
HELFGOTT TRIUMPHS AT CHATSWOOD CONCERT HALL, SYDNEY
David Helfgott's performance on Friday 15 November, at the beautiful Concourse Concert Hall was a musical triumph. To the largest audience ever in the venue, his playing electrified those attending and the resulting applause and cheering did justice to the extraordinary performance.
Audience members said they had never experienced such passionate playing and adulation before at a classical concert.
I just wanted to write and let you know that we were honoured to be a part of the audience at David's Johannesburg concert. Over the years I have seen many of the world's greatest artists - but this was simply the most memorable, haunting and hypnotic performance I have ever witnessed. Just one man and a piano. David seems to be able to pull those bottom notes from the centre of the earth - and fill the room with a cascade of notes like an endless waterfall. Never before have I seen or heard those pieces played with so much individuality and passion. We were seated in row D - so very close, and indeed privileged to see firsthand, this amazing relationship!
I just wanted you to know - and to please thank David from us for sharing his unique talent one more time here in South Africa.
Best to you both always,
Gillian Helfgott has just published a ground-breaking book on numerology with the additional feature of the zero, which is traditonally ignored by numerologists. This system is based on an ancient Chinese method, which was the inspiration for I Ching.
In this method you calculate your birth numbers and put them around a turtle which gives a fascinating image of how the numbers are energized and their meanings.
In part two of the book she traces David Helfgott's extraordinary life journey via his numbers, and also has many case studies.
In the words of Professor Burger "The study of numbers is a beautiful one that has captured human-kind's imagination throughout the ages. it continues to inspire us to explore its enless frontiers."
The book is available on amazon.com and fishpond.com or signed copies by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org The web site www.theinsightfulturtle.com which will be activie by mid December This site will give you the ability to take out subscription and the computer will calcuate your turtles and draw them beautifully.
