Miroslav Bukovsky: Time is Moved, World Premiere. (Alan Vivian, David Pereira and Alan Hicks)

An exploration of tonal colours and the rhythm of tango composed by one of Australia’s most exciting jazz musicians. Miroslav writes of his piece:

“This piece is inspired by a Kenneth Slesser poem Five Bells. Rather a sad piece about loss, grief and memory. It is also about Sydney and its harbour, and water. It’s not easy to try to describe a poem in prose, I have realized. Music is closer to poetry. The imagery was my inspiration, without trying to be descriptive in any way.”

[Program notes by Miroslav Bukovsky]

The School of Music’s exciting new online initiative, Streaming Sounds, was launched at a live performance in Llewellyn Hall on Sunday 16th August 2009 at 3pm. Titled Clarinet.Ballistix, this free concert was streamed live to the Internet. Following the performance there was a Q&A forum, open to web viewers, and a linked interactive blog for discussions across audiences in Australia and beyond.

Renowned performers and School of Music staff, clarinettist Alan Vivian, cellist David Pereira and pianist Alan Hicks were joined by pianist Katherine Day to present a varied programme of works from Verdi to Gershwin, including new compositions by Australian composers Elena Kats-Chernin and ANU’s Miroslav Bukovsky. The concert was introduced by Colin Fox of ABC Classic FM.
