  • Celebrity Soft Spot - Irina Vasilieva /By Rosalind Appleby | Cappuccino Concerts
    the main reason Also my background and upbringing I suppose When I came to Australia it was disappointing to see extremely talented gifted musicians go interstate or abroad to perform I come from Moscow a city that has internationally acclaimed and also local amazing musicians giving recitals so often it is normal to have a few concerts in oneday and go from one to another Here I feel forgive me for being snobby that there is not muchjoy and excitement of listening to classical music The cost and to a lesser extent the programming has detracted from the music being available to the broader community It seemed to me that here in Perth attending a concert was only a privilege and an elitist spastime So I love coffee and I love classical music it was suggested by my then husband to call our series Cappuccino Concerts Why not Here we go celebrating 5 years of bringing classical music to people of all walks of life and it is very rewarding Every time I see people smiling and their happy faces I know I will keep going There are very few female artistic directors in Perth You have a unique voice as a woman and with an international perspective What do you think the people of Perth are looking for in a concert experience I think they need more exposure and opportunity to enjoy talented Australian musicians performing at various venues What type of artists do you have performing I give the priority to local performers usually Perth based but also performers from other states You have a soft spot for chamber music what is the appeal of this repertoire I love chamber music As a performer I learn a lot when playing with other musicians in an ensemble An intimate setting for both musicians and the audience brings people together Johann Wolfgang von Goethedescribed chamber music specifically string quartet music as four rational people conversing It is something that we are losing communication The idea of composing music that could be played at home has been largely abandoned What do we usually have at home TV iPads computers it all takes away from humans interacting with each other even in a home setting The role of chamber music in society has changed profoundly in the last 50 years So the idea is to bring people together in an intimate setting and encourage them to interact with each other Chamber music can do that with a little bit of wine added to the mix You grew up in Russia are opportunities for women musicians greater there than in Australia I left Russia many years ago so I can t say what the situation is like thereat the moment I can only judge from how I grew up And I was brought up mainly among remarkable women who inspired me they were scientists musicians physicists There were politics of course but I grew up with womenbeing equally important in their profession as
