Patience - Commission for Two Pianos / by Steve Barry

With Natalia Ricci and Daniel Rojas

Last night I was thrilled to see Daniel Rojas and Natalia Ricci perform a composition of mine for two pianos at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Verbruggen Hall.

The piece is a product of my PhD studies, which explore ways to facilitate improvisation at the piano through developing a contemporary, creativity-focussed repertory for pianists.

While Daniel is well known as improviser it was close to the first time Natalia had improvised in public - although you wouldn't have guessed it!

A recording of the performance is on its way, and more music for two pianos is coming soon...!
