American Triptych - Jan Williams

  • Australian National Academy of Music 210 Bank Street South Melbourne, VIC, 3205 Australia (map)

Three of the world’s greatest living percussionists gather in Melbourne to celebrate the centenary of the birth of their compatriot, American composer Lou Harrison. In what is set to be one of the country’s major percussion events of 2017, Steven Schick, William Winant and Jan Williams – each the stuff of musical legend – preside over an inspirational ten days of concerts, talks, masterclasses and events with students and practitioners from around the country.

Throughout American Triptych, Lou Harrison’s unique musical cosmos will be celebrated alongside music by his friends and colleagues of that other great musical tradition; the 20th century American tradition.
