Product details

This short work was commissioned by Ku-Ring-Gai Philharmonic Orchestra for their 2012 concert series with the support of APRA/AMCOS. The brief was to based the work around a well-known tune that a younger audience could hear and recognise. Row, Row, Row Your Boat is the tune that immediately sprang to mind. Listen for the twist. This works captures the journey of a not so fortunate boat and its passengers as it travels down the river. Although there are no crocodiles (as the popular revision suggests) - still, don't forget to scream!
