“Contemporary work came alive with the rhythms of the past. The opening concerts reflected this: a fresh new composition by didgeridoo player William Barton, performed in duet with American violinist Kirtley Leigh Paine, laid the way for a series of events. Traditional sounds filled the music stage on CIAF's first evening and formed the heart of the Cairns Festival. ”

    Paradise Concerts International Chamber Music returns to the Centre of Contemporary Arts for a series of four concerts in 2013 to mark their 10th Anniversary. The 2013 Concert Series, Ménage À Trois, will celebrate the greatest masterpieces of the classical world through the elegant and vibrant piano trio. Each concert will bring the genre to life in an interplay of violin, cello and piano, with vivid performances of composers as diverse as Beethoven, Shostakovich, Rachmaninov, Haydn, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Prokofiev and Dvorak. The classic piano trio combination of violin, cello, and piano is well-loved within classical music literature, and is a form used by almost every composer of prominence to explore the sonorities of the three instruments together. The richness of the cello dances with the soaring violin registers, as the piano brings them together, painting a canvas of moods; somemetimes orchestral in breadth, and other times intimate. The concerts will vary in program, offering different combinations of the trio and instruments showcased, while also including guest artists throughout the series, spotlighting additional instrument or vocal compositions. Each concert is presented with flair and passion by International violin soloist and Artistic Director Kirtley Leigh, in the style so beloved by concert-goers time after time.
