Event Details

‘Hope in my pocket’ is the new album from celebrated Australian musicians Sean Foran, Rafael Karlen and Kristin Berardi. Drawing on content from ANZAC letters, this suite of music explore themes of hope, fear, seperation, loss, love, and conditions of war. Sounds of jazz, folk and classical music combine in a way that is intensely intimate and moving, with Berardi’s sublime vocal sounds melding with the melodic contours of the piano and saxophone in a captivating way.

Kristin Berardi – voice
Sean Foran – piano
Rafael Karlen – saxophone

‘If you have not heard Kristin Berardi sing, rush to do so. She is probably the finest jazz singer Australia has produced…’ SMH

‘The balance between composition and improvisation gives the ear a bit of structure to rely upon while keeping on its toes. Most of all, this music is about as beautiful as it gets (Rafael Karlen – Sweetness of things half-remembered)’ - Wondering Sound

‘a gifted pianist with abundant ideas and the technique to go with them (Sean Foran)’ – Irish Times.


This project is supported by the ANZAC Centenary arts and culture fund public grants program.
