Let internationally acclaimed composer and music educationalist, Paul Rissmann, take your secondary students on a journey of discovery through a time-honored favorite in Vivaldi’s Summer, to Sydney-based female composer Elena Kats-Chernin’s Big Rhap, composed in 2017, to the opening movement of Schubert’s 10th Symphony.
The final destination on the itinerary is Paul Rissmann’s music to Australian author and illustrator Shaun Tan’s book The Lost Thing. Recognised as so much more than a picture book for young readers, Secondary students can study Tan’s references to iconic Australian works of art in his illustrations and form their own opinions on what the moral of this story is, which asks more questions than it answers.
