Adelaide’s adopted pianist composer Rich Batsford presents an evening of beautiful and romantic piano music, in two of the most elegant buildings in South Australia: iconic North Terrace landmark Ayers House and rural gem the Courthouse Cultural Centre in the Clare Valley.
Rich’s enjoyable and engaging solo piano music combines artful classical influences with an easy going contemporary ear. The performance will feature Rich’s original compositions including a suite of brand new work alongside and of course, how could he resist including some highlights from debut album ‘Valentine Court’ when performing on Valentine’s Day!
“blossoming, mellifluous debut” Monolith Cocktail
This show builds on the success of Rich’s 2014 show Classically Chilled Piano which drew consistently good audiences and was rated “Outstanding Show’ by Fringe Review.
Rich will also feature a new suite of highlights of the wonderfully melodic solo piano music of Ludovico Einaudi, perhaps the world’s most famous piano composer alongside three pieces by Debussy, Poulenc and Satie, all influential composers from France, that most romantic of countries. The Clare Valley performance is an extended show featuring even more romantic piano favourites.
