Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM)
A celebration of 67 commissioned works in just 8 months.
In 2021 ANAM commenced a remarkable project – commissioning 67 new works for their 67 students. Each composer-student partnership embarked on an artistic adventure, creating works in partnership, a true coming together of creation and performance. New Music Days 2023 seeks to celebrate this epic project with a unique program specially selected by ANAM Artistic Director Paavali Jumppanen.
The Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) is an internationally renowned organisation dedicated to training the most exceptional young musicians from Australia and New Zealand. Each year, ANAM musicians fly between the stage and the studio; performing in over 180 events and receiving hours of one-on-one training and coaching from an esteemed Faculty and impressive list of national and international guest artists.
About the concert
Their performance in Primrose Potter Salon as part of New Music Days 2023 seeks to celebrate the breadth of ANAM as an organisation. The Australian National Academy of Music’s ANAM Set project in 2021 disrupted the compositional landscape, commissioning 67 works in just 8 months. Fast forward to 2023, The ANAM Set proves its versatility with this ‘Directors Cut’, shining a spotlight on some of the works that have proven to be audience favourites, and that are well on their way to becoming repertoire staples.
Please join Paavali Jumppanen, Ariel Postmus and Melody Eotvos for a post-concert talk from 7pm – 7.20pm
Praise for ANAM
‘It is worth stating up front that what the Australian National Academy of Music has achieved with its expansive ANAM Set is extraordinary; for its scale, depth, and for the fact that its conception came out of an undeniably devastating period for musicians and composers globally, this project will certainly go down in Australian music history… – Limelight Magazine
