About Richard Gill and Give Me Excess of It
Richard Gill's career has taken him from being a music teacher in Sydney's western suburbs to Music Director of the Victorian Opera. But beyond raw musical talent, what marks Richard out is his passion as a teacher. He has a deep, infectious love for music which leaves his audiences inspired and enlightened - whether a class of primary students or the cast of a major opera.
Richard's new memoir Give Me Excess of It traces his life from his 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 a love of music.
