Kupka's Piano continues its focus on commissioning, premiering and documenting new music by Australian composers in 2018.
The major project in 2018 is commissioning and recording six new works by emerging Australian composers. Supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, the ensemble is delighted to commission works by Holly Harrison, Samantha Wolf, Samuel Smith, Lisa Illean, Jakob Bragg, and member Hannah Reardon-Smith. These works will be premiered in August at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University and recorded shortly after in a studio session by ABC Classic FM for release on a New Waves podcast.
As typical for the ensemble, Kupka's Piano will also present performances of smaller instrumental formation at the University of Queensland and Lagavulin (at the Piano Mill, Wilson's Downfall NSW).
The ensemble looks forward to devoting time to these projects and scheming for what's next.
