  • Stefan Cassomenos - 'The Piano Man' | Cappuccino Concerts
    Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra Stefan was Composer in Residence at Creative Universe s Creative Innovation Conference from 2010 2012 In 2010 as part of his role as Composer in Residence he was commissioned to write his Third Piano Concerto which he led and directed from the keyboard at its Melbourne Recital Centre premiere with musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music In 2012 he was awarded the Lyrebird Music Society s Annual Commission and had his works premiered by the Curro Quartet Orchestra 21 and the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir His Double Violin Concerto was recently performed at Federation Square by an orchestra of musicians from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria soloists Monica and Sarah Curro and conducted by Fabian Russell But with so many accolades and achievements I had to ask Stefan what s been the highlight of his career for him thus far Performing Prokofiev s Third Piano Concerto with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra as part of the finals of the Vlassenko competition is definitely a professional highlight I m 28 years old and I have to say that thinking back there are occasionally performances that are very special where the audience is totally synchronised emotionally with the music I m performing it s like the stars align and everything seems to be perfect It doesn t happen all that often but for me those are the best highlights The Prokofiev Concerto with Queensland Symphony Orchestra was one of them but there have been others some at festivals some at performances in private homes Stefan draws on many famous composers for inspiration He loves the symphonies of Mahler Brahms and Beethoven the solo piano music of Rachmaninoff the choral music of Bach and Faure and virtually everything by Prokofiev Adams Ligeti and Schubert Yet he also listens to several Greek composers as well as Greek Americans and Greek Australians Nikos Skalkottas is one of Greece s most interesting composers I am very drawn to his work I also love the music of Zambetas very much his music always puts a smile on my face As a young man he grew up listening to Greek music alongside his parents and he says that the music of his heritage has affected his tastes and influenced his understanding of music Greek music is strongly bound to the folk tradition and classical music from all over Europe has its origins in folk music particularly the spirit of the dance As a performer I am grateful for having Greek music early in my life it was somewhat like a window into the European psyche It also influenced the music that I ve written not necessarily by choice but certainly you can hear in my music that my harmonic and rhythmic language is often driven by the memory of the music I grew up listening to I ve performed in Greece a couple of times he says I gave a concert in Athens at the University when
