Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre in partnership with RISING Festival


Chris Abrahams shares his deep mastery of piano with us in a riveting solo performance.

Presenting his newest solo piano works from the critically acclaimed 2020 album, Appearance, you can expect to be fully immersed in a mesmeric and slowly evolving soundworld. Full of expressive beauty, Chris’s music unfolds from simple starting points, in a spellbinding and, at times, psychedelic trajectory, to become something hallucinatory and epic.

The opportunity to see The Necks’ pianist solo is an irresistible opportunity to gain an insight into Chris’s formidable talent and insatiable creative mind. Don’t miss it.

‘Beautifully wrought sound.’ Down Beat

‘One of the most restless and musical artists anywhere.’ The Wire

‘Routinely in play is Abrahams’ penchant for glacial beauty, enigma and a sense of disquiet.’ Sydney Morning Herald
