Blue Mountains Theatre, Springwood
The Painted Piano
Two pianos. Two great pianists. One phenomenal Jazz and Classical performance.
Performing together throughout Australia for over a decade to acclaim and standing ovations, Simon Tedeschi and Kevin Hunt
return in 2017 with a new program of irresistible classical and jazz works, centred around Hunt’s own Painted Piano Suite,
a moving work celebrating connections between indigenous youth and their country, and the joy and the gift of creating music within our communities.
Alongside music from Bach and Debussy to Ellington, Monk and Oscar Peterson, Tedeschi + Hunt also revisit Gershwin’s much-lauded masterpiece, Rhapsody in Blue in a phenomenal arrangement by these two maestros of the piano.

Solo Piano Recital - Mapping Emotions in Music
CONCERT PROGRAM

The Sonata: Mapping the emotions in music

“The Sonata is not a definite form like a minuet, a da capo aria, or a French overture; it is, like the fugue, a way of writing, a feeling for proportion, direction, and texture rather than a pattern.” (Charles Rosen)

BEETHOVEN Sonata no. 1 in F minor, Op. 2 No. 1
BEETHOVEN Sonata no. 26 in E flat major, Op. 81a “Les Adieux”
