Event Details

Inspired by the song of the Pied Butcherbirds of Central Australian deserts to the Whooper Swans of the Arctic Circle, Genevieve Lacey creates a listening experience that collapses time and expands our sense of space. From Jean-Féry Rebel’s 18th-century depiction of chaos preceding creation, through to the world premiere of Hollis Taylor’s Absolute Bird, this is a lyrical program of poetic imaginings. Music also includes Vivaldi’s aerial feats for a stratospherically high recorder in his Recorder Concerto in C, Einojuhani Rautavaara's chillingly beautiful Cantus Arcticus and Erkki-Sven Tüür’s imagined vision of an Australian landscape Whistles and Whispers from Uluru.

Performers: Genevieve Lacey - Curator/Performer (Recorder) Paul Kildea - Conductor

Featured non-Australian music: Jean-Fery Rebel, Vivaldi, Einojuhani Rautavaara, Erkki-Sven Tuur
