The University of Newcastle's Collaborative Environments for Creative Arts Research (CeCAR) is proud to present Michael Keiran Harvey, one of Australia's foremost virtuoso pianists, as part of an exciting new research seminar series featuring cutting-edge research and creative perspectives on social and aesthetic issues.
Harvey, who is currently undertaking a PhD with the School of Creative Arts at the University of Newcastle, will discuss the current and future role of the virtuoso concert musician - with reference to the prophetic compositions and writings of the 19th century piano virtuoso, Franz Liszt.
He will perform compositions and talk about his research into the subject through the prisms of aesthetics, economic viability and contemporary thought.
