Details of the new work:
Variations on an Australian Theme
A commemoration on the landing of Gallipoli
John Spence will perform his new piano work entitled Variations On An Australian Theme. It was composed in 2014 in the lead up to the centenary of the Gallipoli landing and captures the era with references to musical styles of the time including ragtime nostalgia and the stride piano. The legend of the Anzac spirit is celebrated through a colourful and dramatic musical journey. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
