City Recital Hall acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the land upon which City Recital Hall stands. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend this respect to all Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people.
Selby & Friends has been described as presenting concerts that are “absolutely superb”, “blockbuster performances,” with Selby as having “excellent taste in friends”.
Our 2024 Season showcases artists who have made significant and long-standing contributions to the Australian musical landscape, in some cases over many decades. These brilliant artists are incredibly special, not only because they are good friends and colleagues, but also because they have made the art of making music such a truly wonderful adventure.
Our programs for 2024 exemplify the variety and diversity of chamber music you have come to love and expect from a Selby & Friends season – from duos, trios, quartets and quintets by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, to Brahms, Schumann, Tchaikovsky and on to Bartók, Shostakovich, Turina, Vasks and much more.
"Selby & Friends is a formidable musical presence and has featured a stellar line-up of mostly Australian artists producing chamber music performances of the highest order. The roster of artists reads like a Who’s Who of many fine instrumentalists who have notable careers and have made valuable contributions to Australian musical life. This series has been an indispensable outlet for their musical talents and has brought pleasure to thousands of people in the process." – Dene Olding, violinist Goldner String Quartet
