This exciting programme is definitely “once in a lifetime”. To hear four of Melbourne’s most loved and accomplished pianists in the one programme is a treat. And in rarely performed duet formation and – 8 hands at 2 pianos! For anyone who loves piano music, and anyone who had a connection to Max Cooke, what a beautiful way to say “Thank You”.
