Benjamin Martin Solo Recital @ Ian Potter Sound Gallery, Monash University (Clayton) 7:30pm


Pianist and composer Benjamin Martin is as intelligent a musician as you’re ever likely to come across. In this rich concert he teases out a famous pensée by another pianist and composer Ferruccio Busoni: ‘Bach is the foundation of piano playing. Liszt is the summit. The two make Beethoven possible.’ Busoni’s own arrangements of works by Bach sit alongside the master’s magnificent C minor Partita and one of Beethoven’s sonatas in the same key (Opus 10, No.1). Spectacular and lyrical works by Liszt are interspersed

Bach-Busoni: Ich ruf zu dir, Herr
Liszt: Concert Etude No.1, Il Lamento
Beethoven: Sonata in c minor Op.10 No.1
Bach: Partita No.2 in c minor
Liszt-Beethoven: Adelaide
Liszt: Après une lecture du Dante: Fantasia quasi Sonata

Schubert Octet - MCO Concert

Composed in the Spring of 1824, Schubert’s Octet is one of the most iconic works of chamber music. 

Writing for the unusual combination of five strings, clarinet, bassoon and horn, Schubert’s artistry reaches new heights of invention, with immaculate control of texture and expressive melodies. This is chamber music conceived at the most ambitious scale, rewarding audiences with both its awe-inspiring architecture and profound details. 

Schubert’s Octet is performed alongside Melbourne composer Benjamin Martin’s new work for octet, Passepied, and Beethoven’s fiery String Quartet No.11.

Tickets from $63 / $53

Innocence Found: Benaud Trio (As part of Southbank Series 2018)

Beethoven was a headstrong and proud revolutionary, his music bold and unrelenting. Yet revealed in his fifth piano trio is a warm and tender side of irresistible charm. Effortlessly sprouting the parlance of his classical forebears, Beethoven’s music is mellow and intimate, capped off with a sizzling gypsy finale. The Benauds also take this opportunity to introduce Adelaide based composer Jakub Jankowski to Melbourne audiences. His second piano trio reveals how innocence can survive despair and disarray.
