Top violinist in town
INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed violinist Attilla Sautov and his band of talented protégés are set to treat Ipswich audiences to a musical feast when they perform on July 5.
Promotions co-ordinator Eddy Bouma said fans world-wide had responded to Sautov’s flamboyant stage presence and his command of the violin.
After picking up a violin at the age of four, Sautov performed his first concert at the age of six.
He has since played on every continent and in some of the world’s most prestigious venues including the Sydney Opera House.
“He is an extremely capable violinist and very, very fast,” Mr Bouma said.
“His specialty is playing Paganini, which is very difficult to play.
“Not every violinist can pull it off, it is something very special.”
Sautov will be accompanied on the Queensland tour by the Mueller International Chamber Orchestra.
Held at St Paul’s Anglican Church from 7.30pm, the program will feature well known pieces such as Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, to the works of composers such as Paganini.
“The concert features music classical enthusiasts like to listen to and also music for people for who this might be their first classical experience,” Mr Bouma said.
Tickets to the event are available via the website http://www.trybooking.com, but can also be obtained at the door an hour before the concert.
They are priced from $30 for adults, $25 for concession and $20 for students.
