Musica Viva Tasmania | Tamara-Anna Cislowska

24 November 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm AEDT

ARIA award-winning Tamara-Anna Cislowska is one of Australia’s most acclaimed pianists, performing and recording in Australia and internationally to both critical and public acclaim. Earning international prizes in London, Italy and Greece such as the Rovere d’Oro, and touring Japan and the USA as cultural ambassador for Australia, Tamara’s accolades include ABC Young Performer of the Year, the Freedman Fellowship, an Art Music Award for ‘Performance of the Year’ (ACT), and the 2015 ARIA award for ‘Best Classical Album’.

With all its outsize passion and drama, opera was the big art form of the Romantic era. Before the innovation of recorded music, composers brought that experience right into middle-class drawing rooms with transcriptions of famous operatic masterpieces. Taking her cue from this, Tamara-Anna Cislowska has compiled a program showing how the piano can replicate that experience of grand emotion. Franz Liszt, the most famous pianist ever, is dominant here with his brilliant arrangements of Wagner and Verdi and his own challenging Sonata. Other renowned pianists are also featured: Grainger, Lecuona and Albéniz, who with Piazolla lend a Spanish touch. Great pianists, great pianism and great music.
