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

A Sunday afternoon with ANAM 

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.

This work for Four Hands is played in five sections, without a break. Carl Vine says “using those two extra hands which, 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.

The Australian National Academy of Music has for over 20 years nurtured the skills and shaped the musical imaginations of the country’s most outstanding young musicians. Many of the instrumentalists who have spent time at the Academy’s home in the South Melbourne Town Hall have been recipients of major national and international prizes and awards, and occupy leading positions in ensembles and orchestras in Australia and abroad.

This performance is enabled through the generosity of the Yarranabbe Foundation.
