A drifting, gentle performance of lullabies for babies and parents by Nat Bartsch.
Nat Bartsch is a Melbourne-based pianist and composer who creates ethereal, gentle music crossing the classical and jazz music spectrums. When she became a mother in 2017 she created a suite of lullabies called Forever, and No Time At All, inspired by Max Richter’s Sleep project and the children’s genre-crossing of the Teeny Tiny Stevies. Influenced by music therapy, these pieces are designed to encourage babies to fall asleep but also, equally importantly, be enjoyable for adults. This album has had a wide-ranging impact and soothes many people, big and small, across the lifespan. Her jazz re-interpretation, Forever More, was nominated for an ARIA for Best Jazz Album in 2020.
Bartsch will be performing as part of the 2021 Wood, Metal and Vibrating Air piano recital series. This performance is taking place during the day so that adults and children coming to Family Fiesta can attend.
