A champion of Australian music and himself a composer, Michael Kieran Harvey regularly commissions new Australian music and has performed with Australia’s leading contemporary music ensembles and orchestras.
For this rare Sydney appearance, his program focuses on the theme of homage – Andrián Pertout’s homage to his adopted country, “Luz Meridional”; Harvey’s piano cycle “The Green Brain’ inspired by Frank Herbert’s novel; and “Homage to Liszt”, composed by Harvey and dedicated to the inveterate environmentalist, Peter Cundall.
Born in Sydney, he studied piano with Alan Jenkins, Gordon Watson, and at the Liszt Academy, Budapest, under Sándor Falvai. Now based in Tasmania, his career has been notable for its diversity and wide repertoire. He has especially promoted the works of Australian and contemporary composers and recorded many solo CDs on various labels.
Trinity’s Society of the Arts & Delmar Gallery is thrilled to present a solo recital by arguably one of Australia’s greatest pianists.
Date: Thursday 15 June 7.30pm
Venue: Orchestra Room, Roderick West School of Music
Tickets from $20. Free for Trinity students and Society of the Arts members.
