Lifschitz + Johnston: Crumb

Wed 13 November @ 19:00 - 20:00

$40 – $50

A LITTLE MIDNIGHT MUSIC

Renowned for their exceptional artistry, virtuoso pianist Sonya Lifschitz and performance artist Christine Johnston (Madame Lark) form one of Australia’s most dynamic powerhouse duos. In this audacious performance, the pair’s consummate musicianship and imagination are on full display as the worlds of classical music, performance art, and comedy collide.

Part cabaret, part recital, this delightfully surreal concert places two of legendary composer George Crumb’s most beloved piano cycles, A Little Suite for Christmas, A.D.1979 and Eine Kleine Mitternachtmusik (A Little Midnight Music), amidst the sounds of the Antipodes. As Sonya conjures up mythical, primordial, and ancient sounds from inside her piano, Christine takes to her musical saw, inimitable vocals, and overhead projector. Together, they bring George Crumb’s masterworks for piano to life in an intriguingly whimsical and unexpected way.
