David Pereira is an accomplished Australian cello performer, teacher, writer, recording artist and prominent musician on both the national and international scene. Widely experienced, he continues to evolve as a player, teacher, composer and writer. His playing aims for perfect listening and emotional responsiveness, uncompromised by thought or technical limitation. He is currently director of Australia’s only cello focused subscription series of recitals.
David opened the Judi Power Thomson HOT COLOURS and Chan Dissanayake COOL WATERS exhibitions at 11am on Saturday October 2 with a improvised solo performance addressing one each of Judi and Chan's artworks inviting those present to follow him on a journey of musical exploration of the works. The large crowd attending the opening were spellbound by the beautiful sounds of David's cello that resonated in the Octagon Artspace to provide such a wonderful experience. Of the space David said, "I'm inspired by upstairs... very intimate and real."
