Camerata & Lior: Compassion

In 2022, we’re presenting an exciting collaboration that’s been years in the making. After cancellations and border closures, leading Australian singer/songwriter Lior and Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra will at last come together.

Lior and renowned Australian composer Nigel Westlake’s award-winning work, Compassion, has transfixed audiences since it was created in 2013. Drawing on profound and poetic insights of Islam and Judaism, the piece is an ever-timely reminder for kindness and the values shared across belief systems.

The program will also include Australian composer Robert Davidson’s From to Here, originally commissioned by Queensland Ballet and recorded by Camerata for Rani Luther’s From. To. Here. This stunning work features the attractive combination of piano and strings and takes the listener on a journey through emotional valleys of excitement, deep pathos, and searing beauty. We think it’s one of the best works to emerge from Queensland during 2020 and the premiere in 2021 showed that audiences agree!

Don’t miss this beautiful meeting of musical hearts and minds in this deeply moving and heartfelt performance.
