Through both his lauded work fronting The Commotions and his more eclectic solo efforts, Lloyd Cole established himself as one of the most articulate and acute songwriters of the post-punk era. Finally, he returns to Australia in January 2017 with The Retrospective – playing the Lloyd Cole songbook 1983 – 1996. To celebrate the release of the new 1983 – 1996 anthology, Lloyd will perform songs exclusively from this classic period.

 

The release of 2015’s Lloyd Cole and the Commotions Collected Recordings 1983-1989 was received to universal warmth and acclaim, and it sold out far more quickly than UMG anticipated. Embracing a spirit of rediscovery, this show is not to be missed by any true Lloyd Cole fan or anyone with a passion for the history of alt-pop/rock.

 

“The simple beauty of his well-written, perfectly-performed songs remains timeless.” Nottingham Post

Chopin's Last Tour

This work, Chopin's last Tour, has been set in Scotland, about October 17th 1848. One year before he dies. It is perhaps not the happiest time in his life. He knows that he is dying, his relationship with George Sand has ended dramatically, his father has died 4 years earlier and he doesn't enjoy his present company or circumstances.

It is the story of his life through his music and his feelings.

It is an attempt to humanise the genius, to give the audience an insight into the type of person he was. Explaining his upbringing, his family, the importance of Poland, his friendships and his lovers. His battle with illness, his conflicts and his trials.  An insight into the type of life he lead.

 A life that began as a child prodigy in Poland. Being a Pole he was influenced by the native folk music and customs, also by Poland's political plight.

At the age of 21 he left Poland to further his career. He was never to return. He settled in Paris and soon had a reputation as a composer and teacher. He didn't like giving public recitals, only giving 30 in his life time, but did thrive in Salons and drawing rooms of friends.

He was a very likeable, polite man with a quirky sense of humour. He was introverted and shy.

Even today he remains a romantic figure and this play explores the relationships with women in his life.

This play features live piano. The pieces played have been carefully chosen to represent the different sections of his life.

It is an emotional piece, told as if he was writing a letter, thus it gives insight into his feelings.

Has been to Edinburgh, 2015, and  Adelaide, 2016, with success.
