ANAM at NGV

Instrumental music is often an abstract and uncustomary medium through which to portray live, story or personality. The rich collection of Australian portraits on display for WHO ARE YOU: Australian Portraiturecompliments a program of diverse music for solo horn, wind quintet and marimba, selected and performed by ANAM horn player, Nicola Robinson, with ANAM musicians.

The program evokes a musical representation of a portrait gallery and the treasures within, whilst also creating a portrait of the curator. Each work in the program is by an Australian composer. Nicola says:

I have endeavoured to include works that are in themselves portraits, that depict an element of the performer or composer’s personality or a significant life event. This reflects the way in which portraiture can tell a story about the artist’s or subject’s life and work.”
