Lecture-Recital: Sonorous Brushes

Debussy, Durieux, Ravel, Messiaen and Kapuściński


  • Jenny Q Chai piano

Pianist and amateur painter, Jenny Q Chai, has discovered a personal form of synesthesia – a melding of senses – in regards to how she experiences music.

In this French inspired programme, through repertoire which truly lives at the intersection of colour and sound, Chai explores such meeting of the senses, preparing each piece of music as she seeks to translate her mental imagery into the real world, both through her musical performance, and on canvas.
