Nick Parnell - Secret Songs
Start date: 05 October 2017
End date: 05 October 2017
The first piece, Borderline, by distinguished Australian composer and artist Paul Grabowsky fractures reality with a series of intricate rhythmic canons. The second premiere inclusion is composed by gifted Australian pianist and composer Joe Chindamo.
Parnell also presents A Singing Song, a solo masterwork of four-mallet pianistic playing style by Gary Burton, the US vibraphone legend and musical collaborator with jazz great Chick Corea.
Prized by percussionists worldwide, Carousel by Dave Friedman and Dave Samuels is an exhilarating, high energy and virtuosic work. Also revealed is the secret version of Gershwin’s An American in Paris.
In this program there are many more encounters of joyous jazz, pulsing world music and elegant classical works.
Nick Parnell’s music has been called ‘liquid silver floating’. Be warned – his Secret Songs makes it simply impossible to encounter ordinary musical performance again.
