Ragas are usually associated with different times of the day, or with seasons. Three raga-based pieces form tha basis of this program. Peter Tahourdin's Raga Music IV was composed for the Dutch clarinet/marimba Duo Contemporain in 1993, and former Queensland conservatorium composition lecturer John Gilfedder composed his Morning Raga for solo cello. In reverse mode. the late Ravi Shankar invested his Dawn Raga for flute and harp (or guitar) with French exoticisms, creating a kind of bi-focal outlook that permeates also much of the recent music of our guest composer Ross Edwards. Beyond these, Peter Schaefer reflects on the raga in the West in an improvisation for his adapted sitar.
