Ancestry is a celebration of the rich musical ancestry of two leading virtuoso musicians: Matthew Fagan of Ango-Celtic, Jewish, German, Spanish lineage on unique ten-string Spanish guitar and six-string Godin guitar, and Czech violinist Romana Geermans from Prague, who met in Melbourne and formed a profound musical partnership. Ancestry explores the rich story of emigration, survival of internment in concentration camp and pursuit of new freedom and opportunity in the emerging cultural life of Australia in the 1900s to the present day. Fagan and Geermans will be performing works from classical masters Rimsky Korsakov, Mozart, Paganini, Vivaldi; music by Frantizek Domazlicky, the last Czech Jewish orchestral composer to survive internment in Nazi concentration camps including Camp Terezin; as well as Spanish classical, flamenco and Celtic music composed by Matthew Fagan.
