Goldberg Variations

Sonya & Lisa

Details

Virtuosi pianists Lisa Moore & Sonya Lifschitz join forces to present a powerhouse journey on two grand pianos with masterwork music by J.S. Bach, Martin Bresnick and John Adams.

Hear the infamous Bach Goldberg Variations afresh, with it’s intricate ingenuity in luminous clarity as this duo team builds a kaleidoscopic tapestry of color, rhythm and touch.

Paired with bold, new American music – the Melbourne premiere of Martin Bresnick’s mysteriously evocative Handwork and John Adams’ jazz-infused, rollicking Hallelujah Junction – Sonya and Lisa portray an electrifying and generous musical dialogue with explosive, sonic resonance.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Sonja Lifschitz & Lisa Moore
