Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Anna Stegmann
An artistic and musical antithesis.
Anna Stegmann is a passionate performer and educator of early and contemporary recorder music. She a professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where she teaches next generation recorder-professionals. Known for her captivating stage presence, her enthusiasm and virtuosity are ever-present elements in her live concerts.
About the concert
Her performance in Primrose Potter Salon presents Fantasy & Design – a program exploring two seemingly opposing concepts. A common thread throughout each piece, Fantasie is a composition free in form and inspiration. Its counterpart, designed compositions following clear rules, which have often evolved from improvisational practice, is another recurring motif. These two concepts unite and challenge one another, offering an artistic and musical antithesis.
Anna curates a captivating and entertaining time travel through 800 years of recorder repertoire performed by one of the foremost recorder soloists of recent times, traversing music from the Middle Ages to the 21st Century.
Praise for Anna Stegmann
‘Stegmann proved one of the stars of the afternoon, especially with her superb performance of Vivaldi’s Concerto in C for soprano recorder which brought an added enthusiastic ovation after its virtuosic first movement.’ Daily Telegraph
