Program

George Crumb: Makrokosmos, Book 1

The worlds of classical music, performance art and comedy collide in a breathtaking performance, showcasing Sonya and Christine’s consummate musicianship, thrilling audacity and imagination.

About this concert

Christine Johnston as Madame Lark joins piano siren Sonya Lifschitz to unleash their duelling scores. Part cabaret, part recital, this delightfully surreal performance places legendary composer George Crumb’s zodiac-inspired fantasy pieces amidst the sounds of the Antipodes. As Sonya conjures up mythical, primordial sounds from inside the piano, Madame Lark takes to her musical saw, vocals and an overhead projector. Together they bring George Crumb’s masterwork for piano to life in an intriguingly whimsical and altogether unexpected way.
