Kupka's Piano appears at the Cleveland Contemporary Music Event to perform a program titled "Erased Songs", featuring the monumental Enno Poppe work Gelöschte Lieder. Seemingly fitting in their 2017 series Words Fail, Kupka's Piano explores what happens when words fail.
Guest horn player Deepa Goonetillike – Brisbane-born and Frankfurt-based – joins Kupka's Piano to present works that resolve to mutual outcomes despite their unlikely differences. This concert is the final performance in the Words Fail series and returns to the intimate Theatre Rehearsal Space at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.
Kupka's Piano heads to Bendigo, VIC for an appearance at the 2017 Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music (BIFEM). The ensemble will present works by Liam Flenady, Diana Soh, and the World Premiere of Elliot Gyger's Fray (2017) written for the ensemble.

Sloth, love, ageing, and the meaninglessness of words themselves are explored in this enigmatic play by Samuel Beckett with music scored by Morton Feldman. Featuring actors Helen Howard and Michael Fulcher, this performance will take place in the dark to preserve the sentiment of a radio play and will be followed by Feldman’s brilliant Why Patterns as a postlude.
Presented by the Queensland Music Festival and the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.
Takings sounds from both everyday life and the classical concert platform, Brisbane based music ensemble Kupka’s Piano celebrate pieces by contemporary composers from all over the world which range from the weird, wacky and wonderful, to the soothing and serene.

In a post-truth world, where words can no longer be trusted, can we instead say it with music? The first concert of the Words Fail series dives into this exploration, featuring the magnificent voice of Chicago-based Australian soprano Jessica Aszodi for a concert of barely uttered phonemes, quietly violent separations, and dramatic arcs of sound.
