One of the hits of this year’s Perth Festival was honoured at Australia’s top performing arts awards on Monday night. Early music adventurer Jordi Savall’s performance with Hespèrion XXI and Tembembe Ensamble Continuo won a Helpmann Award in the best chamber and/or instrumental ensemble concert category.
Putting European traditions alongside Indigenous Mexican and Latin American sounds, Savall and a dozen performers revered and celebrated both forms in a thrilling performance of music and dance.

It was through his mother’s music teacher, Sir Frank Callaway, that Graeme Gilling first heard about the then School of Music at UWA.
Inspired by Frank to make the move from New Zealand, Graeme joined the School to pursue postgraduate studies in collaborative piano with Professor Roger Smalley. A little over three decades on, Graeme is now Head of Performance and Keyboard Studies at the Conservatorium of Music and inspiring the next generation of musicians.
