Nat Bartsch Quartet Album Launch

The Jazzlab, 27 Leslie Street, Brunswick

Melbourne pianist/composer Nat Bartsch celebrates the release of her seventh album, Hope Renewed, reinterpreting her critically acclaimed, ARIA-nominated classical album Hope. Hope Renewed re-records her compositions with her jazz quartet (as heard on her 2020 jazz ARIA-nominated release Forever More) as well as leading chamber musicians, and additional ambient/post rock production.

Says Nat of the album: “I am in constant pursuit of a creative life that is truly genre-defying. I just want to sound like me… Hope Renewed is an experiment in seeing how it feels to show all the musical sides of me in one place.”
