Grabowsky + Lam: JS Bach
21 June @ 19:00 - 21:00
One event on 25 June 2022 at 19:00
In 1741 J.S. Bach sketched a simple, almost transparent, aria that he then spun into 30 miraculous variations. In this national tour for Musica Viva Australia, Andrea Lam and Paul Grabowsky present their very different solo takes on the resultant work, the Goldberg Variations.
Pianist Andrea Lam – who first performed with an orchestra at the age of thirteen, studied music at Yale, and whose praises have been sung by countless critics – will play Bach’s notes on the instrument where she earned her fame.
Legendary Australian musician Paul Grabowsky then has his turn, creating his own extraordinary, jazz-inflected response to Bach’s eternally beautiful theme.
