Flutist Tim Munro is a Grammy-award winning artist known for bringing audiences into his musical world with passion, intelligence and humour. He has been part of the internationally acclaimed Eighth Blackbird for ten years, alongside his work as a soloist, writer, broadcaster and teacher.
Their performance in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall explores a program of Cerrone, Wesley-Smith, Schumann and Brahms. Bringing emotional immediacy in Christopher Cerrone’s mesmerising, New Addresses, a piece inspired by the poetry of Kenneth Koch. Martin Wesley-Smiths hyperactive virtuosity comes alive with relentless rhythmic energy in a fantastical Waltz and Pat-acake in a tribute to Don Banks.
The complicated love story of Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms is written all over the concluding works of the program. An outpouring of Romantic spirit is central in Schumann’s Three Romances and in Brahms’s first Piano Trio, both compositions penned around the time of their first encounter in 1853-4.
