AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'At the time of writing, the nation is arguing over whether the Sydney Opera House exists as world-heritage architecture or advertising space. This is the kind of stoush between culture and vested interests that Paul Keating would have relished. The Eulogy—a new documentary about classical pianist Geoffrey Tozer—returns us to the Keating years in which the prime minister played a crucial role in Tozer’s life. The title refers to Keating’s 45-minute address at Tozer’s funeral in 2009, which combined palpable grief with a searing attack on the arts establishment, whose negligence Keating felt contributed to the pianist’s premature death.'  (Introduction)
