Classical Morning Matinee Music Season

Choose Your Own (Piano) Adventure

Morning Matinee 2022 Season

Tuesday 6 September | 11am

A PERFORMANCE WHERE THE AUDIENCE PLAYS CURATOR!

The way we listen to music evolves with new technologies. More than anything, music is a way to connect 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 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, Claude Debussy, and George Gershwin to Bill Evans – and more. A list of musical choices will be revealed to ticketholders a few weeks prior to the performance.

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.

Something I have not heard in a long time was the sensitivity Lam put into her performance. It was, at one moment, heartwrenching, at another bold and assured.
