The 24K Recital Series: Andrew Day (flute), Timothy Young (piano)

Increasingly regarded as the finest flautist and flute teacher Australia has produced, Andrew Day, “Our flawless flautist” (Sydney Morning Herald) returns to Melbourne Recital Centre with ‘The 24K Recital Series.’

The series highlights Andrew’s ground breaking exploration of multiple embouchures which come to full fruition with the world’s most revered flute, the 24K Gold Muramatsu, which was handcrafted especially for him by the legendary Hiroshi Aoki.

Internationally renowned for a sound of unprecedented depth and power, Andrew Day shifts gears in the second concert of the series. ‘Sparkling Diamonds’ features a scintillating program of 20th Century French Masterpieces which prove the perfect vehicle for Andrew to highlight the subtlety and sophistication of his rarely heard ‘Diamond’ embouchure which has been decades in the making.

The brilliant Australian pianist Timothy Young, presently Head of Piano and Chamber Music at ANAM, brings his crystalline pianism and intuitive sensitivity for which he is renowned to this daunting program. Andrew’s and Timothy’s flourishing collaboration will bring a sparkling sound world of elegance and excitement to the intimate atmosphere of the Salon.
