Event Details

Brown & Breen harness the expressive intensity of two pianos in Natural Landscapes

Embark on an emotional journey that celebrates the power of nature and its influence over music throughout history.

Delight in an extraordinary program featuring Rimsky-Korsakov’s heart-stopping ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ and highlights from Stravinsky’s virtuosic ‘Firebird Suite’ in an acrobatic transcription for two pianists.

Also on the program are works by iconic Australian composer Ross Edwards who celebrates his 75th Birthday in 2018, and Debussy’s rarely heard jewel for two pianos ‘Lindaraja’ to commemorate the centenary of the composer’s death.
