Event details

International collaborators, trumpeter Niran Dasika and Japanese pianist Sumire Kuribayashi reunite in a concert of lyrical, minimalist compositions and improvisations.

They perform music inspired by the paintings of Kaii Higashiyama, which capture the ethereal beauty, drama and pathos of Japan’s natural landscapes and seasonal change.

Dasika’s distinctive, ethereal trumpet and virtuosic lyricism have won acclaim around Australia, earning him second place at the 2017 National Jazz Awards and a nomination for the 2019 Freedman Fellowship. Kuribayashi’s unique and dynamic touch on the piano puts her in high demand as a performer in Japan and Europe.

Described as ‘ravishing’ (Sydney Morning Herald) and ‘exquisite’ (Australian Book Review), this rare Melbourne performance by the duo is not to be missed.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Niran Dasika & Sumire Kuribayashi
