ANAM: Piano Four Hands 

Join Timothy Young and pianists from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) as they perform in a program that includes Carl Vine’s Sonata for Four Hands.

In the Utzon Room

ANAM has not only established itself as the leading classical music training institution in Australia, but one of the leading institutions in the world."
Nick Deutsch, ANAM Artistic Director

This Event is:


A Sunday afternoon with ANAM 

Timothy Young is one of Australia’s most prominent and versatile pianists. He is a founding member of Ensemble Liaison and performs regularly in recital as a soloist, and in partnership with leading Australian and international musicians and ensembles. Currently the Head of Chamber Music and Resident Piano Faculty at the Australian Academy of Music (ANAM), for this concert, Tim will be joined by three up and coming music leaders - ANAM pianists Liam Wooding and Alexander Waite, and alumnu Laurence Matheson.

The performance is an exploration of works for piano 4-hands, featuring Carl Vine's Sonata for four hands played in five sections, without a break. Of the work, Vine says “using those two extra hands, by playing on the same instrument, have a distinct advantage over their 'duo' brethren”. It is 'pure' music with no specific accompanying narrative or poetic allusion.
