First Thursdays – The life, times and music of Roy Agnew

Roy Agnew was a successful Australian musician. As a pianist he was a popular recitalist in Sydney, where he spent much of his life; his original works were well received by audiences and very often published; he was a much-loved teacher of piano (and composition) in schools and privately, joining the staff of the NSW Conservatorium not long before his untimely death, aged 53, in 1944. He was also a broadcaster on the then very young ABC where he introduced contemporary classical music to listeners.

In today’s First Thursday, Rita Crews will be discussing research on the life, times and music  uncovered in the new book “Breaking the Drought”, which she wrote in collaboration with Jeanell Carrigan.
