To launch his album The Gallery of Lost Memories, musician and artist Ian Logan presents an evening of lyrical solo piano featuring mostly his own compositions. Ian's compositions draw on his eclectic musical upbringing, blending jazz, classical and the blues.
The CD title alludes to the memories and sweet melancholy that provide the inspiration for many of his compositions. They are based on musical sketchbook ideas that have have been stored up from his many different moves between Europe and New Zealand over the past years.
European Song stylist Magdalena Darby will join Ian for the second half of the concert. She is known for her distinctive interpretations of French Chanson and the American Songbook, favouring unusual repertoire with deeply heart-felt lyrics.
Ian is also a well-known artist and gallery curator and will also be exhibiting a selection of paintings and drawings to complement the music.
To round off the evening, complimentary refreshments will be provided between the two sets.
