Now on PBS
Hue Blanes will premiere his evocative and deeply personal new work, based on phrases from some of history’s most famous (and infamous) speeches. From Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” to Hitler’s “Germany 1939”, these quotes have been reinterpreted as a series instrumental compositions, each with its own unique mood, colour and texture.
Things that have been said will be performed by Hue Blanes together with Kristian Winther, Ben Hanlon and Daniel Farrugia, at The Jazzlab, Brunswick on Saturday June 10th at 7pm as part of the 2017 Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
Pianist and composer Hue Blanes is the winner of the 2017 PBS Young Elder of Jazz Commission. This is an annual PBS initiative promoting innovation and excellence in jazz composition, made possible through the generous support of Mark Newman.
