Award-winning pianist Andrea Lam throws open the doors to an interactive, ever-changing experience with Choose Your Own (Piano) Adventure.
The audience ‘chooses its own musical adventure’ determining the playlist from a selection of works by composers ranging from J. S. Bach, Frederic Chopin and Claude Debussy to George Gershwin, Bill Evans – and more. A list of musical choices will be made available on the day, and audience members can submit their choices via their phone.
Interwoven through the concert, Lam performs Schubert’s breathtaking ‘Sonata in A major, D. 95’. This large-scale work encapsulates beauty, nostalgia, grandeur, intimacy, melancholy, joy, stillness and whimsy – all of the elements explored through the audience’s 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. From New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to the Sydney Opera House, she has played for Sydney Festival, Musica Viva’s Huntington Festival (Australia), Orford Festival (Canada), Chelsea Music Festival (USA) with works from Bach, Schumann and Chopin to Aaron Jay Kernis, Lilya Ugay, and Nigel Westlake.
See this exciting show on Sunday 19 February at 3pm at the Byron Theatre. Tickets: byroncentre.com.au
