Wednesday 8th August, Sydney Conservatorium, Recital Hall East, 6:30pm [free entry]
Judy and I have been improvising together since my undergrad lessons, and this concert marks both a continuation and a culmination of a long-running annual series of two piano concerts we've presented over the last 7 years.
To celebrate this auspicious anniversary, we're recording this one for NZ contemporary music label Rattle Records!
In the past each concert has grown from a tiny conceptual cell; tonight, a series of musical themes will emerge inspired by the five classical elements found in ancient Greek, Hindu, Chinese and Tibetan philosophy. In Japanese Buddhism, these are:
Earth: 地 Chi
Water: 水 Sui or mizu
Fire: 火 Ka or hi
Wind: 風 Fū or kaze
Void (Aether): 空 Kū or sora
