Elena Kats-Chernin AO & Tamara-Anna Cislowska

Blue Mountains Concert Society is proud to announce its 2024 return to bringing world class classical music to the Blue Mountains with the most exciting duo in classical music: ARIA award-winning pianist and ABC presenter, Tamara-Anna Cislowska with world-renowned composer and pianist, Elena Kats-Chernin AO - live in Springwood to take you on a magical journey through the music of Kats-Chernin, via tango, ballet, ragtime and classical.

Described by Limelight Magazine as: "A true dream team... dazzling" - and recently this year as "a real cracker"- this is a rare chance to hear one of Australia's leading composers performing her vibrant music live, which has featured at the Sydney Olympics, Commonwealth Games and Rugby World Cup, on iView and countless films. With nearly 8 million streams on Spotify alone and ten ARIA no.1 albums for ABC Classics, Deutsche Grammophon and Naxos, Tamara is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most globally recognised pianists in classical music today, hailed by BBC Music Magazine as "Australian piano gold".

Transfixing and addictive to watch, the synergy of these two world-class artists together at the piano brings a whole new dimension to what a piano concert can be: with no prior knowledge required, enjoy insights into this exciting and moving music, and the cheeky humour of these long-time collaborators, whose projects include chart-topping albums, major works for orchestra and piano and most recently, Human Waves, commissioned by Sydney Philharmonia Choirs for its centenary celebrations and premiered to a sold-out Sydney Opera House in 2023.
