The Poet of the Piano: Andrea Lam Plays Chopin
Newcastle Art Gallery
Newcastle Art Gallery, 1 Laman St, Newcastle, NSW, 2300
Due to the indisposition of the advertised artist, Maria Raspopova, Newcastle Music Festival is proud to announce that the concert will be performed by New York based Australian pianist, Andrea Lam. Making her orchestral debut at age 13 with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, since then Andrea has given over seventy performances with orchestras in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Japan, and Hong Kong. Performing with many of the world’s leading conductors, including Alan Gilbert, Edo de Waart, Michael Christie, and Wing-sie Yip, orchestras include the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, San Francisco Ballet Orchestra, all the major Australian symphony orchestras (Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Queensland, West Australian, Tasmanian), Columbus Symphony Orchestra, and the Auckland Philharmonia and Christchurch Symphony Orchestras (NZ). ABC Classics recently released her soloist recordings of two Mozart concertos with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Nicholas Milton. We wish Maria Raspopova well in her recovery and hope to welcome her again to the Festival in future years.
