On Tuesday 7 June, Monash University Academy of Performing Arts presents Cassomenos plays Beethoven, the second recital in Wood, Metal & Vibrating Air - their six-part concert series featuring lauded Australian pianists.

Having performed internationally since the age of 10 and premiered his own composition Piano Concerto No. 1: Aegean Odyssey with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra at the age of 16, Stefan Cassomenos' credits are impressive. Cassomenos is an active composer, artistic director of various festivals, a founding member of PLEXUS, and has performed with the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn as well several Australian Orchestras. He is also highly awarded, receiving the recipient of the Second Grand Prize and the Chamber Music Prize in the prestigious International Telekom Beethoven Piano Competition Bonn (2013) and a prizewinner in the 2013 Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition amongst others. This performance includes Franz Liszt's piano transcription of Beethoven's Symphony No 5. Cassomenos performing Beethoven will be an unmissable experience.

From May through to September these fine musicians, perform the works of classical, contemporary and avant garde composers, immersing audiences in the musical worlds of Bach, Beethoven, Glass, Gershwin, as well as many more. Each recital will be an up close and personal aural treat with the audience limited to just 150 people who will be seated on the stage of Robert Blackwood Hall with the performer.

The six-part concert series, which launched in May and runs through until September, is an exquisitely intimate performance experience with the audience limited to 150 and seated on stage with the performer. The series also features Andrea Keller, Simon Tedeschi, Lisa Moore and Tamara Smolyar.
