The Full Story
Live at Yours is the brainchild of conductor/pianist Vladimir Fanshil and wife, acclaimed opera singer Eleanor Lyons. Courtesy of the pandemic the duo were unable to return to their adopted home of Vienna, following Eleanor’s successful debut as Donna Anna in Opera Australia’s production of Don Giovanni in pre-COVID-19 Sydney.
The couple, determined to preserve the inimitable spark of live music performance from being lost to the internet in streamed events, searched for a safe way to keep the music they and so many others needed to hear and perform through 2020 and beyond alive.
It began as a modest project with the couple performing in lounge rooms to audiences of 20 guests all over Sydney and quickly grew to regional tours, ACT and smaller venues such as cafes, sheds, art galleries and heritage listed buildings.
