MELBOURNE RECITAL Melba Hall

2nd November 2018

Last week I went to Melba Hall, Melbourne University to listen to a wonderful young pianist, Alexander Hazelbank, giving his final year recital in his B Mus degree where he has been studying with Professor Ronald Farren-Price.

I was thrilled that he included one of my recent pieces, an etude called Dangerous Fun. He played it with much heart and flare. I was very impressed.

Here is the program:

György Ligeti - Étude no. 10 ‘Der Zauberlehrling’ (1994)

Ludwig van Beethoven - Sonata in B flat Op. 106, ‘Hammerklavier’

I. Allegro - II. Scherzo (1818)

Frédéric Chopin - Nocturne in E flat Op. 55 (1843)

Johannes Brahms - Scherzo in E flat minor Op. 4 (1851)

Kate Reid - Étude, ‘Dangerous Fun’ (2017)

Sergei Prokofiev - Toccata in D minor Op. 11 (1912)


He said about the piece: “Dangerous Fun became a close friend of mine over the semester…. a real joy to perform and to study”
