PEACEFUL PIANO with Nat Bartsch & Luke Howard
Luke Howard and Nat Bartsch are at the forefront of the growing post-classical piano movement in Australia. Drawing from classical, electronic, film, minimalism and jazz influences, their beautiful music has had a powerful impact on people from all walks of life, connecting with audiences worldwide and being streamed online over 50 million times!
For many years, Luke and Nat have worked in collaboration in both live and recorded settings. They co-produced several of Nat’s albums, including her acclaimed album of lullabies, Forever, and No Time At All, and her newest release Hope. They have curated many sold out Melbourne concerts, and Nat edited Luke’s popular sheet music book, 28 Transcriptions for Solo Piano. As solo artists they have both received ARIA nominations, and have toured across the world.
For this special double bill tour, Luke and Nat will each perform a set of their music, joining forces at the end for a special collaboration that blurs the lines of composition and improvisation, acoustic and electronic. This is an unprecedented opportunity to explore both artists introspective, meditative and lyrical approach to the piano.
Coinciding with the release of new music by both artists, PEACEFUL PIANO is a unique event tailored to all music lovers classical or otherwise.
