This was a very charming and delightful concert performed with delicacy and vigour. There was fine ensemble work by all and some dazzling harpsichord playing. (Sydney Arts Guide, 2017)

Duo keyboardists Michael Tsalka and Diana Weston bring a mixed program of classic favourites with some vibrant new music to Thoroughbass’s audiences. Building on a musical partnership formed over six years, Michael and Diana present story-telling duets for piano by Debussy, Ravel and Schubert during April 2020 in a series of concerts varying one from the other. Expect stunning new pieces for solo and different keyboard combinations (piano, piano duet, harpsichord, two harpsichords, and harpsichord and piano) from composers the world over including a sultry tango by Diana Blom (Australia), an energetic and sentimental duet from Joan Josep Gutiérrez (Spain), the myth of Io by Aspasia Nasopoulo (Greece/Netherlands), and atmospheric magic in Ann Carr-Boyd’s depiction of moonrise over an iconic Australian scene amongst many others.

Michael Tsalka – piano, harpsichord
