The sounds of a piano and cello resonate through the lonely homestead out in the wilderness…
We kick off our tenth birthday year with a special event at the National Gallery of Australia’s Tom Roberts exhibition. Venture back in time as Griffyn’s Michael Sollis curates a program with special guests cellist Rachel Johnston and pianist Ashley Hribar, evoking the haunting beauty of the Australian landscape and its people. Set in a 1900s homestead, the concert features projected images of Tom Roberts’ work, poetry from the era, and film footage from early 20th century Australia. Central to the program will be the world premiere of Michael’s Hanging Rock Cello Sonata, using imagery from the landscape that inspired so many of Roberts’ colleagues and friends as part of the Heidelberg School.
Rachel Johnston is one of Australia’s best known cellists after playing 7 years with the Australian String Quartet. Ashley Hribar is a prize-winning solo improviser, composer, and chamber musician who received the Michael Kieren-Harvey Fellowship in 2008 and regularly tours across Europe and Asia.
