Rob Hao performs Indie Ditties

11 December 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEDT

$45 – $75

Hipsterdom in music, dramatic Romanticism, crystalline Impressionism

London-based Australian pianist Rob Hao gives the Australian premiere of Sydney-based composer Nicholas Vines’ extravagant fifty-minute portrayal of contemporary hipster subculture: Indie Ditties.

This fun-filled yet thought-provoking contemporary work is programmed alongside a performance of Frederic Chopin’s Three Mazurkas, Op. 63 and the legendary Ballade No. 1 in G minor, Op. 23, as well as Maurice Ravel’s Pavane pour une infante défunte and his touching tribute to his friends lost in the First World War, Le Tombeau de Couperin.

A thrilling solo piano recital that surveys composers whose works reveal incredibly imaginative, personal and engaged musical voices for their respective times – spanning from the nineteenth century to our modern day.

Programme:

Nicholas Vines Indie Ditties
Chopin Mazurkas Op. 63
Chopin Ballade No. 1 in G minor, Op. 23
Ravel Pavane pour une infante défunte
Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin
