Details

With a unique blend of animation, piano keys, film, words and theatrics, pianist Lisa Moore gives the world premiere performance of The Commuter Variations.

The new work by animation artist Sal Cooper and composer Kate Neal celebrates Melbourne Recital Centre’s 10th Anniversary year and is the highlight of a dramatic multi-media concert about movement and commuting. The program includes world and Australian premieres of virtuoso works by Bresnick, Griswold, Lang, Ligeti, Mazzoli, and Nas, plus a post-performance Q&A with the artists.
