What I've Learnt - Paul Grabowsky WHAT I'VE LEARNT

    • Arts

Paul Grabowsky is a pianist, composer, arranger, conductor – and is one of Australia’s most distinguished artists. 


His recent collaboration with the likes of Paul Kelly and Archie Roach showcases Paul’s versatility and both the albums brim with musical gems about love, heartbreak, and tenderness -  a must listen. 


During the late 70's he became prominent in the music scene in Melbourne, working on various jazz, theater, and cabaret projects. 


He lived and worked in Europe and the US, during which time he performed with many jazz luminaries including Chet Baker. 


He returned to Australia and established a reputation as one of Australia's leading jazz musicians and was the musical director for jazz singer Vince Jones. 


He was also musical director of Tonight Live with Steve Vizard (a nationally televised variety show) and was also Commissioning Editor (Arts and Entertainment) for ABC Television. 


Paul has written over twenty feature film scores in Australia, the UK, and the US including films for major directors 'Innocence' (Paul Cox) and ‘Words and Pictures’ (Fred Schepisi) 


His works for the theater include four operas and various multimedia works. His most recent opera, created for soprano Emma Matthews, ‘The Space Between’, with the libretto by Steve Vizard, premiered at the Arts Centre Melbourne. 


He has won eight ARIA awards (most recently in 2020 for his recording, 'Please Leave Your Light On’ with singer Paul Kelly), two Helpmann awards, several APRA, and was the Sydney Myer Performing Artist of the Year in 2000. 


Paul was also an Artistic Director of the Queensland Music Festival from 2005 and was Artistic Director of the Adelaide Festival of Arts for 2010 and 2012. 


Now a Professor at Monash University he is currently director of the Monash University Academy of Performing Arts and the Monash Art Ensemble. He oversaw the development of the Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts, which opened in May 2019, and launched MLIVE, a year-round series of curated performances. 


Such a delight to interview.
