Steve Davislim with Daniel de Borah – Liederabend

December 1, 2019 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Ukaria Cultural Centre

‘Steve Davislim is worth being spoken of in the same breath as his predecessors of similar voice – Peter Anders and Fritz Wunderlich – and praise can hardly be higher than that.’

– Gramophone

There are few voices in Australia – or indeed the world – that come anywhere close to matching Malaysian-born Australian tenor Steve Davislim. In 2017 he gave a phenomenally powerful performance of Schubert’s Winterreise at UKARIA as part of the Adelaide Festival. A deeply expressive musician with a mesmeric stage presence, Steve has a voice that will break your heart.

He returns in December 2019, this time with pianist Daniel de Borah – an artist who is consistently praised for the grace, finesse and imaginative intelligence of his performances. Together they celebrate the four pillars of Austro-German art song: Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms, Hugo Wolf and Richard Strauss.
