Michael Kieran Harvey - Track 50
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 and recorded many solo CDs on various labels.

As a pianist Harvey’s awards include the Grand Prix in the Ivo Pogorelich Competition, USA (1993 - the world’s richest at the time), 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...

Many of the variations are deliberately reminiscent of well-known works, created by taking the work in question as a base and substituting, merging, piecing together or superimposing the notes of 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star'. Styles include counterpoint, harmonic variations, tonality and atonality, 12-tone and serialism.
