HAVASI Symphonic Concert at Carnegie Hall will feature guest star Lisa Gerrard, the co-composer and performer of Gladiator. October 26, 2015.
The Australian singer, musician and composer became a world star as a member of the band Dead Can Dance. For the soundtrack of Gladiator, co-produced with Hans Zimmer, she was nominated for an Oscar and received the Golden Globe. Her characteristic, incomparable, painfully magnificent contralto voice is often heard in the biggest box-office hits of Hollywood. In addition to Gladiator, her own compositions were performed in a number of films, including Baraka, Heat, Mission Impossible II, Man on Fire and The Insider.
Lisa Gerrard has performed in HAVASI Symphonic previously in 2013 in Budapest.
„Havasi is a national treasure. When I first heard his work I fell in love with the piano again, it was liquid and transparent, heart felt and deeply touching. To be a true artist is defined by the absence of vanity. Havasi is a humble giant and restores ones faith in humanity. He is clearly brilliant and has surrendered to his heart, it was a great privilige for me to spend time with him and contribute to his music.” — Lisa Gerrard
The concert at Carnegie Hall, Stern Auditorum / Perelman Stage on Monday, 26 October will be a special collaboration. Lisa Gerrard will perform in HAVASI’s original compositions featuring the Dohnányi Orchestra Budafok. Read more
