Pianist Andrea Lam performs Bach’s miraculous Goldberg Variations, before Paul Grabowsky plays his own jazz-inflected interpretation of this eternal theme on their national tour with Musica Viva Australia.
About the concert

In 1741 J.S. Bach sketched a simple, almost transparent, aria that he then spun into 30 miraculous variations. In this national tour for Musica Viva Australia, Andrea Lam and Paul Grabowsky present their very different solo takes on the resultant work, the Goldberg Variations.

Pianist Andrea Lam – who first performed with an orchestra at the age of thirteen, studied music at Yale, and whose praises have been sung by countless critics – will play Bach’s notes on the instrument where she earned her fame.

Legendary Australian musician Paul Grabowsky then has his turn, creating his own extraordinary, jazz-inflected response to Bach’s eternally beautiful theme.
