To aspire is something fundamental to us human beings. The highlight of this program is the Chopin Concerto which delicately challenges the limits of expression. It is charged with deep emotion, romantic themes from Poland and mesmerising technique of the pianist. Michèle Gurdal, our Pianist of choice is a hidden treasure in the world of piano. Appreciated by connoisseurs but someone who keeps a reservedly low profile. We were able to convince her to come to India especially to bring her beloved Chopin to you. The program is introduced in the first half by the Grieg Holberg Suite whose magic and Scandinavian charm has made it instantly the crowd favourite in hyderabad. The Holberg Suite is a piece you will immediately search for online after the concert.
This program is not complete without a new addition to concert programs at SOTA. We are introducing not just the voice but a young singer who’s making her mark as one of the worlds leading Sopranos. Lauren Pearl Eberwein possesses not only a rich and glowing voice but also a personality that is energising and captivating both on stage and off stage. She will bring to you in this concert a selection of Arias from Mozart and another composer that we are keeping secret to surprise you at the concert. Her voice and the music will combine to give you an experience that not only transports you to another country and another time in history but also, to a whole new dimension of artistic experience.
