This latest selection of photos were taken at the Musica Viva Festival held in Sydney last April. I was lucky enough to be asked to be the festival photographer and thus spent a week mingling about with some moderately famous international musicians, in and out of rehearsal and performances. What a thrill it was! As a moderately experienced performance photographer (and only 17 at that point) it was unbelievable to be shooting the likes of Pekka Kuusisto, the Takács Quartet, the Goldner String Quartet, Khatia Buniatshvili, Iiro Rantala, Anna Goldsworthy, the Eggner Trio, along with members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra. Things like that just don’t happen. As they say in show business, it’s who you know not what you know.
