Event Details

Duality brings together two virtuoso musicians, Australia's award winning recorder player Alicia Crossley and American harpist Emily Granger, in an exhilarating concert of classical and contemporary works for recorder and harp. The unique instrumental duo will journey through re-imagined masterpieces including Faure's “Sicilienne”, Anne Boyd's “Goldfish Through Summer Rain”, and C.P.E. Bach's “Sonata in G minor”, interspersed with specifically commissioned new works by eminent Australian composers Tristan Coelho, Mark Oliveiro, and Andrew Batt-Rawden. Audiences will also be treated to a rare performance of Debussy’s masterpiece “Danse sacree et danse profane” for harp and strings, and the Australia premiere of Peter Hope’s “Birthday Concerto” for recorder, harps, strings and percussion. Duality intrinsically juxtaposes then with now, light with dark, through two beautifully intimate instruments of ancient origin that have stood the test of time over millennia.

Featured non-Australian music: C.P.E. Bach's Sonata in "G Minor", Faure's "Sicilienne", Debussy’s “Danse sacree et danse profane” for harp and strings, and the Australia premiere of Peter Hope’s “Birthday Concerto” for recorder, harps, strings and percussion.
