New album: DUET volume 2

ABC Classic and Tamara-Anna Cislowska & Guests are thrilled to release another album of more glorious moments of musical magic.

Each week on ABC Classic’s Duet program, award-winning Australian concert pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska welcomes a star into the studio to share an hour of music and conversation at the keyboard. It’s a chance to discover what makes great performers tick: how and why they do what they do, what inspires the music, and where the artistry is born.

The highlight of each program is a duet performance, live on air: music made in the moment, capturing the intimacy of new connections between stellar artists. This album brings together some of the most passionate, profound, joyous and sometimes quirky musical moments from the show, featuring 24 guest artists including Ben Folds, Umberto Clerici, Karin Schaupp, Erin Helyard, Garrick Ohlsson and William Barton, in a rich kaleidoscope of musical colours from cello to saxophone, celeste to ophicleide and trumpet to didgeridoo. Tamara Anna performs on piano, harpsichord and ruined piano. Tracks on the album range from works by classical composers like Bach and Rachmaninoff to Australian composition visionaries including Edwards, Doumany, Vine and Kats-Chernin.

‘Some of the guests featured in this album I met on the day, some I’ve known all my life,’ says Tamara. ‘All these musicians are precious to me and each brings their own experience, expertise, discipline and thoughtfulness to the music. Lend us your ears!’

The new album is available from 16 September 2022 as a CD or a digital download, ABCL0028. Read more about it here: media release.
