‘New pieces from Italy, Germany, Australia and the UK, all trying to make sense of the piano's place in the repertoire. Liza Lim's first piece for piano is a major work, typically thoughtful, energetic and beautiful. My own piece is a kind of fairytale and the first overtly virtuosic thing I've ever written for the piano. In Thomalla's piece the piano and its repertoire is deconstructed and the instrument becomes, literally and figuratively, an echo chamber, while Mauro Lanza's piece is fast, funny and hurtles relentlessly to a brutal conclusion.'
Featured non-Australian music: Hind, Thomalla, Lanza
