Event Details

This program is born of a recording project, which was half a decade in the making. Titled weaver-of-fictions, it takes its name from a haunting solo by Liza Lim, prelude to her opera The Navigator. We finish with another solo from the same opera, and in between the journey takes us via Australian bird miniatures from John Rodgers, to electro-acoustic works by Brett Dean, Bob Scott, Steve Adam and Damian Barbeler, and another solo for the beautifully expressive Ganassi recorder, by UK jazz cult figure, John Surman. The programme also includes a single contemporary recorder classic, Romitelli's Seascape (1994), for amplified contrabass. Apart from this, all the works were written for Genevieve Lacey.

Featured non-Australian music: Surman, Romitelli
