Kawai Piano Series 5 – Stephen Emmerson plays Janáček
Wednesday, June 16, 8:30PM (AEST)

Janáček’s works for piano are exquisite gems, intimate expressions in a musical language all his own. At the center is his Sonata – a work of blazing intensity, an impassioned response to injustice – while the surrounding character pieces are among his most personal and alluring music.
