Salon: Stunning and sublime piano to uplift and comfort

During the long lockdowns of 2021, one of Australia’s most acclaimed composers, Professor Matthew Hindson, began writing solo piano pieces that seemed to fall under the ever more popular search term of “sad piano music”: pieces that comforted, supported, or uplifted, and somehow did not strictly fit into classical or Neoclassical or even romantic categories.

With internationally renowned pianist Andrea Lam bringing these pieces to life at the keyboard, these stunning and not-always-sad miniature works will be presented live onstage by Matthew Hindson, providing insight into the pieces, what inspired them and how they evolved.

Recorded over 2022 and shared only intermittently until now, come and hear what online audiences are loving as an accompaniment – or antidote – to the frenetic pace, daily challenges and moments of solitude of the world we live in today.

“[Andrea Lam’s] performance was one of sublime beauty from beginning to end…” Limelight Magazine, 2021

This concert is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
