Important Concert Update
It is with great regret that Musica Viva announces the cancellation of Ian Munro.
‘Our primary concern is always for the wellbeing of our patrons, artists and staff,’ says Musica Viva CEO Hywel Sims. ‘We’re following government advice closely and have made the difficult decision to cancel this tour.’
You will have an opportunity to receive a refund for your tickets, exchange them for a later performance or donate their value to Musica Viva. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you to a concert again soon.

Ian Munro is one of Australia’s finest musicians, in demand as both a performer and a composer. For this solo recital, Ian has chosen music which reflects on friendship, and which brings out his trademark style of finely judged, expressive pianism.
Bach’s playful farewell to his travelling brother leads neatly to the lively dialogue between Schumann’s ‘imaginary friends’ Florestan and Eusebius. Dohnányi’s charming bagatelles pay homage not just to the friends he was leaving, but the master composers they all loved; while Ian’s own reflections on words by Judith Wright provide the perfect conclusion.
