LINDA KOUVARAS - PIANOWORKS
LINDA KOUVARAS

The works on this album were written in repsonse to specific locations - a reflection on the lived experience of three distinctly different places: a residential college at Melbourne University, the inner Melbourne suburb of St. Kilda, and a working farm and historic homestead situated on the Shoalhaven River in New South Wales. The composer brings the locations to life in music, all recorded on the Steinway piano in the recently built Iwaki Auditorium.

review extracts:
“a collection of pieces that tantalises by its secrets ... thoroughly delights ... in hearing it one is almost bewitched by its wistful turns of melody, subtle chord-building and apparently improvisatory forms.” - Graham Strahle, MCA Music Forum
“Linda Kouvaras has established a unique language of keyboard music in the tradition of the great composer/pianists ... remarkable” - Margaret Throsby, ABC Classic FM
“The music and the performance are inspiring, enthusiastically tackling life in a spiritual sense while providing a spontaneity in a physical manner with the music itself.” - Chris Copas, The Star
“the piano is the sole story-teller of many different scenes and personal thoughts. Kouvaras gives a faultless performance” - Elizabeth Scarlett, ArtStream
