Mostly Mozart – Inner Journey


Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & ANAM


A dynamic musician of seemingly unlimited capability.

About the artists

The imaginative and versatile Finnish virtuoso Paavali Jumppanen has established himself as a dynamic musician of seemingly unlimited capability who has already cut a wide swathe internationally as a solo recitalist, orchestral collaborator, recording artist, artistic director, and frequent performer of contemporary and avant-garde music. The Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) is dedicated the artistic and professional development of the most exceptional young classical musicians from Australia and New Zealand.

About the concert

Paavali Jumppanen performs with and directs musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) in a program of virtuosic versatility as part of our Mostly Mozart series.

Opening with Pärt’s famous Tabula Rasa, a double concerto for 2 violins, string orchestra and prepared piano, this piece is often credited as the turning point in Pärt’s career.

The program finishes with Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.24 in C minor. The brooding darkness of this work makes it unique among Mozart’s concertos. It projects a reflective, personal, almost intimate quality that resonates with listeners.

Don’t miss this imaginative virtuoso as he performs in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall with Musicians from Australian National Academy of Music.
