Event Details

University of Queensland pianists Liam Viney and Anna Grinberg are joined by the St. Peter’s Chorale, directed by Graeme Morton, in this concert featuring repertoire for two pianos and choir. The highlight of the event will be the world premiere of a large new by Stephen Leek, winner of the prestigious Robert Edler International Prize for Choral Music. Warrumbungles Burning is a multi-movement work that explores themes of Australian wilderness and its relationship to fire. Beautiful and evocative texts are married to the unique sonic context of 2 soloistic pianos and the rich sound of the St. Peter’s Chorale. Also on the program is the Australian premiere of Mary Ellen Child’s Bright Faces, which sets the poetry of Sappho using the same 2 pianos and choir setup, and the music of Bach arranged for two pianos.
