|Australia Piano Quartet|
Last Tuesday the Australia Piano Quartet played their last concert of the year in the Utzon Room. The quartet comprises (Rebecca Chan (violin), Thomas Rann (cello), Evgeny Ukhanov (piano) and James Wannan (viola).
They are vibrant, young and virtuosic and their program included Mozart, Saint-Saens and the new commissioned work In Search of Asylum by Pozniak. Rebecca Chan explained how the challenging Pozniak piece put the musicians into the mind-space of the asylum seeker and a spokeswoman from the Asylum Seeker Resource Center spoke about how they are trying to help those arriving on Australian shores.
The view is spectacular even without the huge cruiser that was tugged past the window. Once the musicians started playing however, all eyes were on them.
