Max Riebl - The Great Pretender

  • Christ Church 14 Acland Street Saint Kilda, VIC, 3182 Australia (map)

A breathtaking performance that reimagines and unites the power of early pop with the genius of baroque, Max Riebl presents The Great Pretender as part of The St Kilda Festival, at Christ Church, Acland Street.

The Great Pretender showcases the ethereal countertenor voice of Max Riebl, who combines his mastery as a baroque musician with the pure vocal power and authenticity of an emerging pop artist – Garland, Bach and Morrissey collide and the result isn’t fusion, it’s chemistry.

Wittily confronting his inner battle between artistic obedience and disobedience, Riebl rebels against the puritanical authority of classical music and embraces an unruly, alternative world of music, which seeks purity and truth over boundaries, judgement and austerity. Accompanied by virtuosic musicians and unique, electrifying arrangements, The Great Pretender unveils a new sound and concept.
