So Much Myself: Piano Portraits

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

A piano, a virtuoso, and a five-part musical portrait gallery where archival video, narrative, and music collide in an interconnecting tapestry of stories celebrating discovery – this captivating performance will be showing at Riverside Theatres on Sunday 5 May.

Pianist Sonya Lifschitz and composer Robert Davidson create a series of musical portraits spanning centuries of female artists, scientists, and leaders.

This compelling new work from the creators of Stalin’s Piano waves a complex, interconnected tapestry of stories through the recorded words of some of our greatest voices and creators, including figures as diverse as Marie Curie, Frida Kahlo, and Dame Nellie Melba.

Sonya blends her own voice with these recordings, bringing to life stories from a thousand years ago, through to her own Ukrainian grandmother and great aunt recounting their escape from Kyiv during the Nazi bombings and massacres.

So Much Myself, Piano Portraits is a stunning original collection that probes the big questions of our time and celebrates stories of people bringing their fullest selves to the challenges of convention, danger, inertia, and prejudice.
