Richard Gill was one of Australia’s best-known – and best-loved – musical figures. His career has taken him from teaching music in Sydney’s western suburbs to Music Director of the Victorian Opera, and along the way an involvement with almost every major opera company and orchestra in Australia. What truly distinguishes Richard is his passion for spreading not just the joy of music, but its myriad benefits. He is our greatest musical educator, and his life’s work – alongside his other roles – has been advocating music in our education system, and furthering the development of those who’ve gone on to choose music as a vocation. This memoir traces his life from school days to the highs (and lows) of conducting and directing an opera company. It’s warm, funny, highly opinionated and always sublimely full of the love of music. Give Me Excess of It is Richard’s memoir, tracing his life from school days to the highs (and lows) of conducting and directing an opera company. It’s warm, extremely funny, highly opinionated, occasionally rude (where warranted) and always sublimely full of the love of music.
Richard James Gill AO (4 November 1941 – 28 October 2018) was an Australian conductor of choral, orchestral and operatic works. He was known as a music educator and for his advocacy for music education of children.
