About the performers

Taking its name from Bohemian painter František Kupka’s iconic 1909 painting The Piano Keys, the Brisbane-based contemporary music ensemble Kupka’s Piano aims to entice audiences into hearing new sounds, new structures, new musical ideas.

Kupka’s Piano is a collective of musicians and composers committed to celebrating the latest classical music from Australia and around the world. The ensemble uses a variable formation of instruments in the presentation of new works, with core members composing and performing on flute(s), clarinet(s), cello, piano, percussion and electric guitar. Kupka’s Piano has developed a strong community profile both locally and nationally and was the Ensemble-in-Residence at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts from 2013-2016.
