It is my great pleasure to welcome you to MAPA Season 1 for 2015. As Monash University continues an exciting expansion of residential capacity, our cultural precinct will take on increasing significance as a vital hub, reflecting the University’s commitment to significant and diverse cultural events. Commensurate with this vision, our programming is diversifying and deepening.

This year, the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music celebrates its 50th anniversary. MAPA has various plans to mark the occasion, including appearances by students and ensembles at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

I am delighted to announce the full Monash Academy Orchestra (MAO) 2015 Season. Across four concerts, with conductors Fabian Russell and Warwick Stengards at the helm, the MAO will perform major Australian works alongside canonical masterpieces, including

Bartok’s rarely performed Duke Bluebeard’s Castle and Beethoven’s Symphony No.9.

The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will return with chief conductor Sir Andrew Davis, and the newly refurbished Sir Louis Matheson pipe organ will feature in a series of recitals curated by University Organist John O’Donnell in the Robert Blackwood Hall.

Modern dance company Tasdance will bring their acclaimed production Luminous Flux to the Alexander Theatre, and in this significant centenary year, The Lost WW1 Diary starring Damian Callinan will provide food for thought.

Please join us at one of these very special events.

Magda Mayas in RecitalMagda Mayas prepared piano

Magda Mayas is a pianist living in Berlin working in the field of contemporary, improvised music. over the past fifteen years she has developed a vocabulary utilizing both the inside as well as the exterior parts of the piano, using preparations and objects that become extensions of the instrument itself.

Mayas explores textural, linear sound collage, and has developed a set of extended techniques that draw on the history of prepared and inside piano vocabulary, but are highly individualized and expand the language for internal piano music making. the extended techniques are not so much preparations in the Cagean sense, which involves a fixed set up for specific pieces, but a flexible one where all preparations are instantaneously accessible and movable, thus adaptable to different pianos, the acoustics of different concert spaces and musical requirements. the real-time orchestration of timbre, exploration of instrumental colour and textures, both in solo and ensemble contexts, have been the main concern of her work to date.

Magda Mayas performs internationally as soloist and in collaboration with a large number of musicians and composers.

The recital will be followed by a workshop and Q & A from 2:00pm – 3:00pm.

ın 1973 sir Louis Matheson was approached on the question of whether he would regard the construction of an organ in robert Blackwood hall as a fitting memorial to his soon-to-be-completed term as first vice-Chancellor of Monash University. his response was positive: he was pleased to hear that those who approached him believed they could ‘raise the wind’. a committee was established under the chairmanship of Professor ron Cumming, and myself as a consultant, and the decision was made to aim for an instrument that would be truly unique in australia. the first choice of builder, Jürgen ahrend of Germany, put a proposal to the committee in 1974 for an instrument to be delivered in 1980, and that is what happened.

Monash University’s ahrend organ is unique in australia, and indeed in the southern hemisphere, as an instrument designed and built entirely according to the methods of the great 17th century builders. ın 2015 the organ is receiving a major refurbishment by Jürgen ahrend’s sons, hendrik and heiko, and to celebrate this important milestone, ı invite you to experience this instrument in pristine condition in three free lunchtime recitals.

The Lost WWI DiaryWritten and performed by Damian CallinanDirected by Tim Overton

Damian finds an old diary in a Warrnambool op shop. ıs Paddy Callinan the mysterious digger his family never speak of? ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ meets ‘All Quiet On The Western Front’ as the three-time Barry nominee (Backyard Ashes, Spicks & Specks, Skithouse) brings the page’s characters to life and finds it’s a long way to tipperary without GPs.

obsessed from a young age about all things anZaC, Damian routinely circumnavigates all regional war memorials in search of diggers bearing his name. Finally he finds the diary that connects him to the Legend?

a renowned stand up and character comedian, Callinan breathes life into the subjects of the diary. he combines detailed research, hilarious but believable characterisations, black humour, absurdity and deft writing to swing the mood of the story from rollicking farce to aching pathos in a heartbeat.

The Lost WWI Diary is proudly supported by regional arts victoria, the victorian Government through arts victoria, and the Community support Fund.

*Please note this production is suitable for mature audiences.

Monash University Academy of Performing Arts presents

Mozart & BrahmsSculthorpe Sun Music IVMozart Sinfonia Concertante in E flat major, K.364 Brahms Symphony No.4 in E minor, Op.98

Fabian Russell conductorIoana Tache violin Kristian Winther viola

This first concert for 2015 brings together works of three musical giants across three centuries. Arguably Australia’s best known composer, Peter Sculthorpe had a distinguished career in composition and music education both in Australia and overseas. His recent passing sees many of his works being performed on the concert stages of Australia and around the world. At a premiere in North America of his Sun Music IV, the Montreal Star reviewer wrote ‘it grows, it blossoms, it evolves with as much variety as the images in a kaleidoscope - we must hear more Sculthorpe’.

The magnificent Sinfonia Concertante for violin, viola, and orchestra in E flat major, K.364, is Mozart's only surviving complete work of this type, a genre that incorporates elements of both the symphony and concerto. The orchestra is joined by two wonderful soloists, Ioana Tache and Kristian Winther.

For his final essay in symphonic form, Brahms composed a truly monumental work. Rich orchestral colours abound, and melody after melody flows right across the orchestra. The triumphant sound of the finale is impossible to avoid, with Brahms using every instrument of the orchestra to drive onwards to the most thunderous and joy-filled conclusion.

Russian MastersKats-Chernin Dance of the Paper UmbrellasTchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 in B flat minorShostakovich Symphony No.10 in E minor, Op.93

Fabian Russell conductorArthur Athan piano

In the book Testimony, Shostakovich said: ‘I did depict Stalin in my next symphony, the Tenth. I wrote it right after Stalin’s death and no one has yet guessed what the symphony is about. It’s about Stalin and the Stalin years’.

It has been described as forty-eight minutes of tragedy, despair, terror, and violence, and two minutes of triumph. Shostakovich certainly felt the capriciousness of Stalin’s rule first-hand – he was publicly denounced, his works proscribed, and his status reduced to that of a ‘non-person’. Friends and colleagues disappeared, many of them never to return. The horror of these years – and the collective sigh of relief that doubtlessly followed when Stalin died on March 5, 1953 – certainly make a plausible program for Shostakovich’s Tenth.

Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto is one of the most loved in the repertoire. Arthur Athan, winner of the 2014 Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music Concerto Competition, will make his debut with Monash Academy Orchestra performing this popular work.

The concert opens with a delightful and whimsical work from Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin, Dance of the Paper Umbrellas.

Bluebeard’s CastleKodály Excerpts from Háry János SuiteReiner Lacan: Ein Lehrstück Bartók Duke Bluebeard’s Castle (concert version)

Warwick Stengards conductorDeborah Humble Judith Warwick Fyfe Duke BluebeardFelix Nobis narratorJessica Aszodi sopranoTristram Williams trumpet

Bartók’s only opera occupies a unique place in twentieth century music theatre. Although dark-hued and with only two characters, it has, nevertheless, astonishing theatrical power. The work concentrates on the relationship between Judith and Bluebeard, the gradual exposure of his possessions, domains, and, most importantly, psyche. Bartók’s command of atmosphere and orchestration is simply extraordinary.

We are thrilled to be presenting two of Australia’s internationally acclaimed singers, Deborah Humble and Warwick Fyfe in the roles of Judith and Duke Bluebeard. Both singers received accolades during their appearances in the 2013 Melbourne Ring Cycle.
