Joanna MacGregor is one of the world's most celebrated pianists. She’s released more than 40 solo recordings, and performed in major concert venues through out the world. This special programme for MAX @ 245 pairs Bach's sunniest keyboard work with the drama of Nina Simone, Ginastera’s wild dances, Mary Lou Williams’ cool jazz and Piazzolla tangos. Eleanor Alberga’s uplifting, powerful It’s Time invokes Pushkin’s famous poem, depicting transformation through African rhythm. A feast of the highest artistry.
