Melbourne Recital Centre for Moon Under Water

Demo Image

Melbourne Recital Centre was the place to be with The World Loves Melbourne part of a packed Salon for Moon Under Water featuring pianist/composers Andrew Hagger and Elodie Sablier. Their performance was part of Mood Indigo: Jazz at Melbourne Recital Centre.

Moon Under Water explores the perfect, imaginary place for friends and family to gather. Named after George Orwell's 1946 essay, Andrew Hagger's debut piano solo album is being hailed for its incredible atmosphere of soulful tone with first-class musicianship.

The 2013 ABC Music labelled album achieved ARIA Top Ten status for Classical Crossover music, and includes the musicianship of Oscar-nominated David Hirschfelder, Elodie Sablier, Chong Lim and Tommy Emmanuel.

Pursuing a business executive life after leaving university, it is only recently that Andrew began performing nationally. From 2006-2011 he was a Director on the Melbourne International Jazz Festival Board. In 2010 Andrew co-produced the ABC Music album Hope: Songs of Faith and Inspiration which was one of the ARIA Top Ten Albums across all genres for Australian works, and which included his co-written compositions such as Isn't It Amazing, performed by Olivia Newton-John.

Andrew Hagger's souldful tones were again on display, as he took us on a journey on the Steinway that was transparent and uplifting.

Sitting beautifully between French Romanticism and a more modern Australian attitude. Vertigo is Elodie Sablier's recently released solo album featuring her original compositions. Exploring the frontiers of classical, her album sits alongside the likes of Philip Glass and Michael Nyman in its minimalism, repetition and looping.

Elodie had us captivated and enthralled. Neither too overly dramatic nor too languid, Vertigo treads the middle-ground of an engaging, pensive tastefulness that spins a gentle, hypnotic web of sure-footed musical discipline.

Elodie Sablier's music has recently formed the soundtracks to Vogue magazine Australia's 'Cate Blanchett 2014' project video, Samantha Rebillet's film The Last Goodbye and Jasmin Kozowy's documentary on Afghanistan, Generation A.

The crowd imbibed the high class musicianship and were generous in their applause. The Salon is a majestic venue to enjoy music with stunning accoustics and the ability to grab a cheese or dip platter and wine.

Vertigo by Elodie Sablier is a triumph and we are glad Elodie has been residing in Sydney and playing Australian venues.

This was a night of inspiration and excellent musicianship, with the many hoping for another concert to back up this sold out event.
