Salon: Solo celebrates the best of local and international soloists, all year long. This is your opportunity to hear a diverse range of repertoire by some of the world’s best musicians in the intimacy of the Salon.
The French word Salon refers to a gathering of individuals who share the same ideas and beliefs.
Melbourne Recital Centre’s Salon is inspired by Australian pianist/composer Percy Grainger who believed ‘a melody is as free to roam through tonal space as a painter is free to draw and paint free lines’.
To share this musical notion, Grainger’s 1937 graphic score, Free Music No.2 is inscribed across the Salon’s diffusing timber panel walls, inspiring musicians and audiences alike.
