Venue: Melbourne Recital Centre, Primrose Potter Salon
Saxophonist Justin Kenealy and pianist Coady Green unite as Duo Eclettico, two award-winning Australian artists showcasing a dazzling array of virtuosic music for this rarely heard combination of instruments.
Following its sell-out recital in 2019, Duo Eclettico returns for a two-concert series exploring the fragile relationship between nature and humankind. In concert one, the virtuosic Fuzzy Bird Sonata of Japan’s Takashi Yoshimatsu is paired with a new work by Australian composer Jane Hammond
and the Australian premiere of the epic Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano by William Albright.
Takashi Yoshimatsu's work is extremely well-known in Japan and America, but is not widely known here in Australia. The Fuzzy Bird Sonata for alto saxophone and piano is an important piece in the classical repertoire for saxophone and piano, and Justin and Coady would like to encourage this work to be better understood in Australia.
