“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything...” Plato
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.
