Selby & Friends | Natural Wonders – Canberra

20 September 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

Australian premiered by Selby & Friends six years ago, Tower’s ‘Big Sky’ is a visceral portrait of the composer riding her favourite horse through a deep Bolivian valley. A Grammy award-winning American composer, Tower’s work is highly evocative, grounded in a love of the natural world. Given his famous long walks and love of nature, it seemed only right to include Brahms’ massive youthful, then much later reworked, B major Trio in the program along with the emotionally driven, very late Mendelssohn Trio as they both resonate with imagery, passion, humour and song.

Susie and Umberto work together for the first time with Kathy in this exhilarating program of big works for piano trio.
