Friday 28th November 2008 saw The Old Court House at Glebe filled to capacity to hear (and see) the Yale-based Australian guitarist Simon Powis. Whilst in days of old the building would have witnessed its fair share of light-fingered people, these were light fingers of an entirely different sort! The bench, the press gallery and every other available space was occupied by an adoring audience to hear classical works by Giuliani, Weiss, Scarlatti and Bach, and contemporary works by Houghton (Ophelia) and Roncalli (Choro da Saudade and the enchanting Suenos en la Floresta). But the piece de resistance had to be the musical representation of open-heart surgery, the Libra Sonatine by Roland Dyens, enough to make anyone want to scurry off to the cardiologist.

We wish Simon every success in the next phase of his career as a doctoral fellow at Yale University.
