Internationally acclaimed pianist, Sarah Grunstein, returns to Sydney

When:
Sun 23 Sep 2018
Cost:
$35 students/$80 general admission
Details:
Internationally acclaimed Australian pianist, Sarah Grunstein, returns to the Sydney Opera House by popular demand, to perform two concerts in 2018. While Grunstein is distinguished for her interpretation of Bach’s works, described as “tempestuous” and “imbued with a luminous calm", the praise she has received is not limited to her performances of this composer.

The first Sydney Opera House concert will be a programme of three of the composers she most loves to play: Beethoven’s Sonata in E major, Op. 109, Brahms’ Fantasien, Op. 116, and Schumann’s Fantasie in C major, Op. 17. Grunstein remarks, “Each work is highly structured, yet also highly improvisatory, each in a vastly different way. It is the improvisatory qualities that suggest the poetry and pliability of Romanticism, yet also hark back to the influence of the 18th century.” Of Grunstein’s Beethoven performance The New York Times wrote: “Beethoven's Sonata in D was delivered with a directness that only heightened the tragedy that propels the central Largo; the surrounding three movements danced with appropriate grace..."

The second concert will feature Grunstein playing Bach’s Goldberg Variations, which is perhaps one of the most challenging works in the keyboard literature. Her recent performance of the Goldberg Variations has led to her being acclaimed as the "shining light" among the Bach pianists of this generation.
