Michael Kieran Harvey - Moths

Michael Kieran Harvey - Moths
Australian pianist and composer Michael Kieran Harvey was born in Sydney and studied piano with Alan Jenkins, Gordon Watson, and at the Liszt Academy, Budapest, under Sándor Falvai. Based in Tasmania, his career has been notable for its diversity and wide repertoire. He has especially promoted the works of Australian and contemporary composers, recording many solo CDs on various labels.

Released in 2009, his CD "Elektra" (Move MD 3329) was described by Australian critic Clive O'Connell as the product of an "indefatigable master-pianist...pieces commissioned especially for his volcanic talent". Harvey's homage to Zappa "48 Fugues For Frank" (MD 3339) was premiered at Mona Foma 2010 and won an AMC state award for best composition in 2011. (MD 3339).
As a pianist Harvey’s awards include the Grand Prix in the Ivo Pogorelich Competition, USA, the Debussy Medal, Paris (1986), the Australian government’s Centenary Medal (2002)and the 2009 APRA award for Distinguished Services to Australian Music. His compositions have been performed in Europe, the UK, North and South America and Asia, in addition to major Australian festivals. His compositions are held at the AMC. The Michael Kieran Harvey Scholarship was established in 2006 to encourage future directions in Australian keyboard art music.

About this track...

The work takes inspiration from Frank Herbert’s 1966 futuristic ecological novel The Green Brain, in which insect intelligence evolves leading to a resistance against the devastating impact of humans on the biosphere.
THE CD is 20 movements for keyboards and piano, each named after major insect genera, and accompanied by a series of ‘concrete’ poems by poet Arjun von Caemmerer.
