Andrea Lam | Choose Your Own (piano) Adventure: Schubert & Co.
Fri 15 July at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Doors open 6pm, performance beings 6:30pm.
Presented in association with Musica Viva Australia.
The way we listen to music is ever changing with technology. More than anything, music is a way to connect us and to make us feel and think differently. To explore this, award-winning pianist Andrea Lam throws open the doors to an interactive, ever-changing experience for the first half where the audience ‘chooses its own [musical] adventure’ and determines the music playlist according to what they wish to hear in that moment – choosing among options spanning from J. S. Bach to Bill Evans. To end the program, will be Schubert’s Sonata in A major, D. 95, an apt sounding board for the music that has come before. This large-scale work somehow encapsulates everything: beauty, nostalgia, grandeur, intimacy, melancholy, joy, stillness and whimsy – all of the elements explored in the preceding selection of works, whichever they will be.
Pronounced a “real talent” by the Wall Street Journal, New York-based Australian pianist Andrea Lam performs with orchestras and leading conductors in Australasia, Japan, China and the United States, including the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, and all major Australian symphony orchestras.
