All Out Of Love - The Air Supply Album - Patrick Roberts

On his new album, Australia’s ‘Prince of the Violin’, Patrick Roberts pays tribute to the beloved music of soft rock legends Air Supply, alongside Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock of Air Supply and the Prague Symphony Orchestra.

All Out of Lovereimagines Air Supply’s timeless songs on classical violin – sometimes with orchestra, sometimes with piano, but always with an outpouring of emotion. Iconic hits ‘Even the Nights Are Better’, ‘All Out of Love’ and ‘Making Love Out of Nothing at All’, plus covers of beloved favourites ‘Unchained Melody’ and ‘Without You’ (made famous by Mariah Carey) make this an album packed full of beautiful new versions of classic tunes.

In 2018 Patrick was invited to record on Air Supply’s new orchestral album alongside Tommy Emmanuel, Secret Garden, The Carpenters, Joshua Bell and many more. Following these sessions, Graham and Russell offered to appear on Patrick’s next album, recording the serene, intimate versions of ‘All Out of Love’ and ‘Lost in Love’that you hear on this record. Air Supply also invited Patrick to perform with them on their 2019 Australian Tour.

Formed in Australia in 1975 by Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock, Air Supply had a string of worldwide smash hits in the late 70s and early 80s. A string of singles reached the very top of the charts in America, Australia and Canada, establishing Air Supply as household names. The band were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2013.

Patrick Robertshas been entertaining audiences for over 25 years. Picking up the violin at the tender age of five, he has been classified as a true violin genius and has transformed some of the much-loved classics into contemporary masterpieces. Best known to audiences through his appearances on Carols By Candlelight and on Channel 7’s Good Friday Appeal for the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne. His recent album, Pink, debuted at #1 on the ARIA Classical chart.

Release
The Huntington Estate Music Festival is one of the brightest stars in Australia’s musical firmament. For three decades, it has been bringing together top-flight musicians from around the country and around the world to present a breathtaking array of chamber music masterpieces, both iconic favourites and delicious new discoveries. Presented by the Huntington Estate Winery in association with Musica Viva Australia, and held in the winery’s Barrel Room, one of the most remarkable and surprising music venues in the world, the Festival is a delight to audiences and musicians alike.After 30 stellar years of exceptional music-making, however, the 2019 Festival will be the last, with Huntington Estate owners Tim and Nicky Stevens reluctantly deciding that their grapes – and their young family – must come first. To mark this significant occasion, ABC Classic is proud to delve into its broadcast archives to present this selection of some of the Festival’s most memorable performances across a typically diverse and intriguing range of repertoire: from Schubert and Dvořák to Bach’s astonishing eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann and Australian composers Ross Edwards and Ian Munro.It was Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra who began the Festival and established it as a serious contender on the world stage – and the hottest concert tickets in the country! This album includes superb three recordings from those early years: music of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Percy Grainger.In 2006, the ACO passed the baton to Musica Viva and Artistic Director Carl Vine, opening up the Festival’s artist roster to an extraordinary range of musicians, both local and international. From among the literally hundreds of thrilling performances, this album features New York-based Australian pianist Andrea Lam, Russian-Armenian clarinettist Narek Arutyunian, the rich bass-baritone of Teddy Tahu Rhodes and Vienna’s acclaimed Eggner Trio, along with regular Festival guests the Goldner String Quartet and the rising stars of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Chamber Orchestra.…/2The CD of this compilation is available exclusively at the Festival itself, but for all those who can’t make the trip to Mudgee, ABC Classic is releasing the full album as a digital album, for download and streaming, so that audiences all around the world can share in the celebration. TRACKLISTING  1     MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 3 ‘Scottish’: II.
