Royal Opera House, Mumbai, supported by Furtados, The Quarter and Avid Learning, proudly present one of India's most talented young classical musicians, Pianist Sahil Vasudeva who is widely credited with bringing the piano out of conventional spaces into performance art. The Un-Recital looks at his journey as a musician juxtaposed with the chaos of the Capital, the city he calls home. Accompanied by mixed media and an introspective narrative, the performance breaks away from a traditional recital to offer classical music within a personal context. The performance will include work by Rachmaninov, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Philip Glass, Schumann, Debussy, Satie, and his own compositions.
Sahil studied piano under Dr. Nelson Harper at Denison University, Ohio (2004-2008) and with Irina Biryukova in New Delhi (2012-2015). He was selected from a national pool of pianists to perform at the Young Talent Concert Series at NCPA, Mumbai (June 2015) and has since been performing regularly across leading venues in the country. He was studying under Late John Raphael at the Delhi School of Music. He has performed in leading venues across the country. Notable venues are the Royal Opera House Mumbai, NCPA Mumbai, India International Centre, Oddbird Theatre, Institute of Cervantes (Delhi), Exhibit 320, Alliance Francais, Piano Man Jazz Club, Depot 29/48, Australian Embassy, NGMA Bangalore, TIFA (Pune), and several art exhibitions and galleries, to name a few. He has also composed for independent film, documentary, TV commercials, art installation and performance art. Sahil is one of the few local musicians performing western classical music in India. He wishes to revive the dying art of solo piano performance, share the depth and his passion for classical composition.Read more
