Natalya Plays: STUDIO GHIBLI – Chopin Style
Saturday 3rd August 2019
The Concourse, Chatswood NSW
Anime and classical music lovers – this evening is for you!
Celebrate some of the most iconic music from the films of STUDIO GHIBLI – played in the style of Chopin by Australia’s quirkiest pop culture pianist in this brand new solo concert! Natalya is a classically trained performer who brought you WORLDS CONNECTED: Music from Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts in 2018. Following its great success, she’s back with another virtuosic program which will feature some exciting arrangements that distill the essence of Chopin into his instantly recognizable Nocturnes, Preludes and Waltzes, and cleverly infuse the melancholic themes from the iconic Ghibli films such as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, My Neighbour Totoro and many more. The result is a truly unique blend of Chopin’s Romantic classical style with Hisaishi’s sentimental motifs and unusual jazz inspired harmonies.
Dubbed by the Sydney Arts Guide as “a unique artist to keep an eye out for”, Natalya has been winning the crowds over with her quirky sense of humour, inspiring storytelling and technical prowess.
