Merlyn Myer Music Commission

November 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm

Now in its second year, the Merlyn Myer Music Commission has been awarded to stunning jazz pianist and composer Andrea Keller.

Initiated by the Merlyn Myer Fund and co-developed by Melbourne Recital Centre, the commission is an important opportunity for female Australian composers.

Andrea’s new work for piano, percussion, clarinet, flute and electronics will be premiered by Sydney-based champions of adventurous new music, Ensemble Offspring as part of their year of featuring all female composers.

Also on the program will be more works written specifically for the group – Mary Finsterer’s now classic Silva, Holly Harrison’s Vibe Rant and Bree van Reyk’s Light for the First Time, celebrating the imminent birth of her first child.
