ANAM | Rhapsody in Blue

2 May 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

$25 – $62

PROMINENT LONDON-BASED AUSTRALIAN PIANIST PIERS LANE AND ANAM MUSICIANS’ VERSATILITY AND BRILLIANCE WILL BE ON FULL DISPLAY IN THIS DEMANDING PROGRAM.

  • Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue defines the roaring 20s – its flappers, its bathtub gin and its fascination with the romance and rhythm of the big city
  • Dutch composer Leo Smit was killed in the Holocaust, and left behind a small but exquisite musical legacy, including this scintillating sextet, which owes as much to the chic French music of the time as it does to Gershwin
  • The richly romantic language of Chausson’s sextet makes it one of the most impassioned of all chamber works

SMIT Sextet for piano and winds
GERSHWIN Rhapsody in Blue arr. Terracini for brass quintet and piano
CHAUSSON Concerto for violin, piano and string quartet

Piers Lane piano
ANAM Musicians
