Event Details

Lior and Nigel Westlake’s collaboration, Compassion, is a symphony of songs that will unite the soulful power of Lior’s voice with the radiance and vivid drama of Westlake’s orchestral style. Their theme is the wisdom of compassion expressed through ancient writings and their musical artistry. Join us for an orchestral feast - a night of music with beauty and heart.

Compassion was commissioned by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and premiered at the Sydney Opera House in September 2013.

...the music is sophisticated and original, and the words are full of wisdom, this work is all heart (Sydney Morning Herald)
