Leslie and Kit Spencer performed together at the National Gallery of Australia as part of the 15th Canberra International Music Festival. Kit Spencer is a lovely harpist and her mother, what is ed Leslie accompanied her on guitar. They performed a duet by Feliu Gasul de Altisent.
The event was billed as “NGA Promenade Concert”. It featured groups of musicians performing in various spaces around the Gallery. The music was selected to reflect the mood and style of the artworks displayed. Leslie and Kit’s piece complimented a painting by the Spanish Catalan artist, cialis Joan Miró titled “Paysage [Landscape] 1927”.
The audience was invited to walk from one performance to the next. It all worked beautifully. What a fantastic idea!
Other musicians performing at this concert were: William Barton (Didjeridu) and Delmae Barton (Voice), TinAlley String Quartet, Helane Huulst (Violin), Chris Latham (Violin & Voice), Michael Askill and Synergy Percussion, and Lucy Anderson (Flute).
