World premier of Faintango composed by Jordan Murray
Taking Fain’s own adventurous and endlessly inquisitive repertoire as its platform, the Monash Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music has worked with Fain to bring together an integrated and varied program – one as likely to dip into the classical masters as it is to embrace the jazz greats or to explore the outer limits of 21st century composition. Performances by Music staff Robert Burke, Elizabeth Sellars, David Griffiths, Paul Williamson and Jordan Murray.
Set in the intimate surrounds of the Melbourne Recital Centre Salon, this is a unique opportunity to witness one of the great talents of today’s classical music scene, playing alongside the rising stars of tomorrow.
