Romano Crivici, (ex-Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Elektra String Quartet) and Roland Adeney (ex-Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Perth Symphony Orchestra) on the Last Violin, will perform some of the beautiful music you will have just experienced in the film immediately after the screening so the audience can hear the Last Violin in the flesh! Followed by filmmaker Q&A with Director/Prodcucer Dr Carla Thackary and Producer/Composer, and film’s impetus, Romano Crivici.
When professional violinist and composer Romano Crivici persuades retired master violinmaker, Harry Vatiliotis, to make a last violin, a heart-warming story unfolds. Charalambos Vatiliotis, or Harry, is considered Australia’s greatest living violin maker. He and his wife Maria came from Cyprus in the 1950s. Romano has known Harry for 48 years. Together they share the making of Romano’s last violin, Harry’s 800th, and possibly his last too, as the ravages of old age take their toll on each of them.
