5 STARS from Glam Adelaide "The ease and polish with which these two actors change and interact is delightful to watch. These two are joined by Stefanie Rossi known to Adelaide audiences for many fine performances"

Johannes Brahms is attending a party to celebrate the first performance of his Violin Concerto – but his genius is overshadowed by his self-destructive ego. His friends are all there, but everyone is caught in a seething cauldron of passionate recriminations – and darkly hilarious outcomes. Everyone has their own agenda - the arthritic, embittered and ageing Clara Schumann from his past: jealous, unstable virtuoso Josef Joachim; pompous and waspish critic Hanslick - and gentle friend and disciple Von Herzogenberg. As the evening progresses and emotions turn on a sixpence, the play moves to its extraordinary conclusion fuelled by turbulent feelings and farcical misunderstandings. Laughing through our tears we are continually challenged with the questions: Why art? - and what price do we pay for it?
4 STARS. "There’s nothing like a couple of fine old English actors and a meaty bit of intimate theatre....Of course, the play belongs to Salvage. It is a fierce performance and admirable."
Samela Harris - Barefoot Review
6 STARS! "I am going to have to start handing out 6 stars It’s a wonderful piece of theatre which deserves a sellout at the Fringe. Don’t miss it"
