Free Lunchtime Concert: Classical pianist Aura Go

Aura Go, Musica Viva FutureMaker 2018-19 artist, enjoys an active and multifaceted musical life, performing as a soloist, chamber musician, lied pianist and conductor. She has performed concertos from Bach to Rautavaara with many of Australia’s professional orchestras and been a guest artist at numerous international music festivals including the Melbourne International Arts Festival and Edinburgh Festival. In 2017 Aura appeared as soloist in Aarre Merikanto’s third piano concerto with the Tapiola Sinfonietta for the 2017 PianoEspoo Festival and gave solo and chamber performances at the Kuhmo and Kauniainen music festivals.

Aura’s regular chamber music partners are Japanese pianist Tomoe Kawabata in the KIAZMA Piano Duo and Finnish-Swedish mezzo-soprano Erica Back. A keen advocate of new music, Aura enjoys collaborating with composers and has presented numerous world premieres in the USA, Australia and Finland. She has given first performances of works by composers including Gordon Kerry, James Rushford, Garth Neustadter, Tiina Myllärinen and Kate Neal. Her work as conductor/pianist for the premiere of Neal’s large-scale multidisciplinary work Semaphore was awarded Best Instrumental Performance at the 2016 Australian Art Music Awards.

After studies in Australia and the Yale School of Music, Aura is currently a doctoral candidate at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, where her artistic research addresses the aspect of creativity in classical music performance and explores ways in which musicians can achieve a more open, spontaneous creative state when practicing and performing.
