Sheet Music: Score
It is just the heart : for soprano and string quartet / Katy Abbott.
by Katy Abbott (2006)
Each movement has been composed from the inspiration of visits to
four museums/collections respectively: The Melbourne Museum
(Children's museum), The Cunningham Dax Collection, Science Works
(The Planetarium) and The Holocaust Museum.
I wanted to capture the 'human' element of each collection. Buildings holding a collection of paintings, artefacts, facts, museums may be viewed from a variety of angles. I like to think of these places as a depiction/ portrayal of our humanity. I have chosen the title to represent an emotional and human aspect of each institution.
