Launching her long-awaited solo albums, London based Australian contemporary composer-pianist Rae Howell returns home to perform an exclusive and intimate concert with the Sunwrae String Quartet.
Performing original and improvised works that oscillate effortlessly across genres with immediacy and vibrancy rarely experienced in contemporary music, this is one show not to be missed. Recorded over ten days in St Paul and Minneapolis (US), Invisible Wilderness is a diverse double volume solo album featuring a collection of Rae Howell’s piano and keyboard works from contemporary, popular and cinematic styles to jazz infused improvisations.
Featuring all original works, Invisible Wilderness: Volume I was recorded on a Steinway concert grand – whilst Invisible Wilderness: Volume II is more abstract, sidestepping the traditional piano sound, performed on a Fender Rhodes and various upright ramshackle pianos that immerse the listener in different textures, including the hammers, felts and pedalling.
With support from the New Music Network, the Sunwrae String Quartet features Atilla Kuti, Zac Johnston, Phoebe Green and Tim Blake. Support from Meg Morley on piano
