Australian premiered by Selby & Friends six years ago, Tower’s Big Sky is a visceral portrait of the composer riding her favourite horse through a deep Bolivian valley. A Grammy award-winning American composer, Towers’ work is highly evocative, grounded in a love of the natural world. Given his famous long walks and love of nature, it seemed only right to include Brahms’ massive youthful, then much later reworked, B major Trio in the program along with the emotionally driven, very late Mendelssohn Trio as they both resonate with imagery, passion, humour and song. Australian virtuoso, violinist Susie Park and the immensely popular cellist/conductor Umberto Clerici work together for the first time with Artistic Director/Pianist Kathryn Selby, AM in this exhilarating program of ‘big works’ for piano trio.
