Corrs Chambers Westgarth partner Thomas Jones delivered an exclusive performance at the Conservatorium of Music on Thursday 21 August.
Thomas, also a highly accomplished violinist, made the world premiere performance of a work by the Sydney-based composer Moya Henderson with his wife, flautist Laura Chislett Jones. The piece, Remembering, reflects on the Anzac experience. With Sydney pianist David Miller he also premiered Love Drunk by acclaimed Iranian composer Reza Vali who teaches at Carnegie Mellon University in the USA. Vali is known as the “Iranian Bartok” because he collects folk songs.
Reza Vali was also a guest at the concert.
Thomas, who has played professionally for more than 25 years said, “It was a magical night with two world-premiere performances in front of the composers.”
