Stalin’s Piano – Rosny Barn

A Ten Days on the Island Festival event

About

Sonya Lifschitz’s collaboration with composer Robert Davidson, is a recital like no other, deftly synching virtuoso piano with texts from iconic creative and political figures like Bertolt Brecht, Goebbles, JFK, Ai Wei Wei, Stalin, Sontag, Gillard and Trump, Stalin’s Piano is a captivating – at times devastating, at times tender and humorous – tour de force weaving music, archival video footage and the performer’s own speaking voice to explore big themes in modern history.

Praised by the New York Times and The Age for her “dynamic” and “powerful” performances, Ukranian-born pianist Sonya Lifschitz is internationally recognised as one of Australia’s most innovative and fiercely creative musical voices. Of her recent performance of Stalin’s Piano at the Brisbane Festival a critic wrote: “Lifschitz was a life-force of extraordinary density and capacity”.
