In Outer Sounds, Kupka’s Piano steps into the beyond: interstellar, mystical, civilisational. The concert features as its centerpiece Swiss composer Beat Furrer’s kaleidoscopic septet, Gaspra (1989). Titled after an asteroid of the same name, Gaspra is a poetic exploration of rhythmic structures and otherworldly timbres. This concert also features the world premiere of Liam Flenady’s Si el clima fuera un banco for piano & tape, alongside pieces by Phillipe Hurel, Jerome Combier and Liza Lim.
Performers: Kupka's Piano, with guest artists Tamara Kohler (flute), Graeme Jennings (violin), and Ben Marks (conductor).
Featured non-Australian music: Beat Furrer - Gaspra (AP); Philippe Hurel - Tombeau in Memoriam de Gerard Grisey (AP); Jerome Combier - Feuilles des paupieres (AP). AP = Australian premiere.
