Reflections: Amir Farid
On Reflections this Sunday, we meet US-born Iranian-Australian pianist Amir Farid. Since winning numerous competitions, including the 3MBS Young Performer of the Year and the Piano Trio prize at the Australian Chamber Music Competition, both in 2005, and graduating from the Australian National Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, his career has taken him abroad. He was on the staff of the Juilliard School in New York when the pandemic brought him home to Melbourne.
Loretto Perkins talks with Amir Farid on Reflections at 4pm Sunday 6 June, repeated 3pm Friday 11 June.
