About the Event

Royal Opera House, Mumbai, supported by Avid Learning and Furtados, proudly presents 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.

About the Artist
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.

The Royal Opera House, Mumbai is widely touted as Mumbai’s Cultural Crown Jewel and India’s only surviving Opera House. The original idea for the space was conceived of in 1908, inaugurated in 1911 by King George V, and eventually completed in 1916. The design incorporated a blend of European and Indian detailing. The space became a cinema in later years before falling into disrepair and shutting by the 1990s. Fittingly, the space has been owned by the Royal Family of Gondal since 1952 and was eventually restored by conservation architect, Abha Narain Lambah under the leadership of His Highness, Maharaja Shri Jyotendrasinhji of Gondal. The Royal Opera House Mumbai, now one of the last remaining Baroque structures in the city, reopened after 23 years in October 2016. The building was included on the 2012 World Monuments Watch to raise awareness about its history and significance, and support preservation efforts. The building has since been recognized with an Award of Merit in the 2017 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation. The restored facilities feature a 575-seater 3-level auditorium with an orchestra pit and state of the art technological upgradations, including acoustics, stagecraft, lighting and air-conditioning, alongside retaining the old world charm of the proscenium stage, the royal boxes and the magnificent regal chandeliers. Some more enhancements to the venue include a motorized screen, co-axial ceiling speaker system, Four-zone volume control and all round wifi access. Today, it stands as a key performance and creative hub in the city’s cultural landscape, while being a premier heritage landmark. Facebook: MumbaiOpera Twitter: @MumbaiOpera Instagram: @mumbaiopera
