EMILY SUN AND ANDREA LAM
Since first capturing the world’s attention in the award-winning documentary Mrs Carey’s Concert, London-based Australian violinist Emily Sun has won the hearts of audiences around the world. In 2021 she partnered with award-winning Australian pianist Andrea Lam to record Nocturnes – their debut album for ABC Classic. While both musicians have established an increasingly international presence, we’re delighted that their touring schedules have aligned in Australia, allowing them to perform together at UKARIA for the first time.
At the heart of their program are two of the cornerstones of the repertoire: Mozart’s effervescent Violin Sonata in B flat, K.454, and Gabriel Fauré’s magical first Violin Sonata, full of rapturous melodies and audacious harmonies. The first half closes with three of Astor Piazzolla’s most intoxicating tangos. Floating like silken threads around these masterworks are exquisite, dream-like miniatures: the moonlit beauty of Debussy’s Clair de lune, and the yearning Nocturne by Lili Boulanger, one of the great poetic voices of French music.
