Aura Go

CONCERTS 2, 3, 5 & 6

"A touchingly beautiful singing sound and a dazzling ability to elicit the multi-layered textures."

Australia’s Aura Go enjoys a multifaceted musical life, performing as a soloist, chamber musician, Lieder pianist and conductor.

She has been soloist with many of Australia’s professional orchestras in concertos ranging from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven to Gubaidulina and Schnittke. Recent highlights include appearing as soloist with the Tapiola Sinfonietta in Aarre Merikanto’s Third Piano Concerto, and recitals in Denmark, Poland, Italy and Australia.

Aura studied at the Victorian College of the Arts and at ANAM, and attained her Master of Music degree from the Yale School of Music. She is now a doctoral candidate at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. Her artistic research addresses the aspect of creativity in classical music performance, drawing on the psycho-physical approach of actor Michael Chekhov and exploring ways in which musicians can achieve a more open, spontaneous creative state when practising and performing.
