Praised by The New York Times for her ‘penetrating musical intelligence’, internationally acclaimed Australian pianist Sarah Grunstein performs Bach’s iconic work, the Goldberg Variations. Reviews have likened her performances to those of Dame Myra Hess, Harold Samuel, and Wanda Landowska. She is fervent about historic pianos and Bach improvisation.
Sarah has performed in the United States, Austria, Hungary, Italy, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and her homeland.
Early in her career, in celebration of the Bach Tercentenary she performed Bach’s complete "Well-Tempered Clavier" in London’s Purcell Room, New York’s Merkin Concert Hall, and the Sydney Opera House, her all-Bach recital in London leading to an invitation to perform at Kensington Palace before His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. More recently her performance of the Goldberg Variations led to her being acclaimed as the “shining light” among the Bach pianists of the generation following Glenn Gould.
