Richard Pavlidis


The remarkable improvisations of Melbourne jazz saxophonist Richard Pavlidis are the centrepiece of his original music.

Flashing between playful and self-reflective moods, his music appeals to jazz aficionados and newcomers alike.

Joined by his band for his latest show, Origins, Pavlidis explores the nature of loneliness. His tenor saxophone traces a human lifetime, navigating a solo path from childhood to adulthood.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Richard Pavlidis
