Event Details

Sir Andrew Davis leads a celebration of the music of Australia’s – and Melbourne’s – greatest composer, the fascinating and brilliant Percy Grainger. An orchestrator of dazzling virtuosity, Grainger invested the music of British and American folk traditions with original realisations, and his music exults in an Australian ideal of democratic openness. As a pianist, Grainger’s performances of the concerto by his mentor and friend Edvard Grieg were famed for their sympathy and insight, and this concert celebrates Grainger’s triumph with a performance by superb Australian pianist Piers Lane.
