London-based Australian pianist Rob Hao gives the Australian premiere tour of Sydney-based composer Nicholas Vines’ extravagant fifty-minute portrayal of contemporary hipster subculture: Indie Ditties.

This fun-filled yet thought-provoking contemporary work is programmed alongside a performance of Frederic Chopin’s legendary Ballade No. 1 in G minor, a selection of Impromptus by Franz Schubert and other works by both composers, exploring some of the most lyrical music in the piano repertoire.

This is a thrilling solo piano recital that surveys composers whose works reveal incredibly imaginative, personal and engaged musical voices for their respective times – from the nineteenth century and our modern day. 

Programme:

Nicholas Vines - Indie Ditties (2017)

Fryderyk Chopin - Three Mazurkas Op. 63

Franz Schubert - ‘Erstarrung’ from Winterreise D911 (transcribed by Franz Liszt)

Franz Schubert - Du bist die Ruh (transcribed by Franz Liszt)

Fryderyk Chopin - Impromptu no. 3 in G-flat major, Op. 51

Franz Schubert - Impromptu in G-flat major, Op. 90 no. 3
