"Amy Abler was one of the most surprising guest artists we have had in our community. Not only was she great to work with but people loved everything about her. This show was the one show we received the most rave reviews about in the entire festival." - Julian Canny Funtavia Programmer & Creative Director of Euphorium Creative
Echoing the crossover concert styles of Liberace and Victor Borge, this world-touring US pianist/singer is a classical musician gone rogue. Combining virtuosic technique with vivacious comedy, she covers Beethoven to Broadway, pop to Paganini, ragtime to rock'n'roll. 'A seasoned entertainer who has not forgotten how to entertain' (TheatrePress.com.au). ‘Imagine if Bette Midler and Liberace had a love child... this woman can play the piano... with every part of her body!’ **** (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘From classical to blues... ragtime, Beethoven, ABBA, Van Halen, Jerry Lee Lewis and back again!’ (RipItUp.com). 'One heck of a pianist' **** (TheatreGuide.com.au).
What would happen if Ludwig van Beethoven met Albert Ammons!? They might play classical and boogie-woogie piano for each other, exchange anecdotes and musical facts, or perhaps even share the piano jointly to improvise and jam! Well, here, American classical recitalist Amy Abler and Scottish blues'n'boogie-meister Daniel Smith do all this and much more. A unique, delightful, humorous, musically superb, wonderfully varied, and ultimately rip-roaring piano-fest! Two trans-Atlantic piano music-mates combine to produce a fascinating, entertaining and very special performance that, well... perhaps even Ludwig and Albert would have enjoyed.
