Adelaide Festival 2021 - Birds : Incredible Floridas - Chamber Landscapes
This event is part of the Incredible Floridas - Chamber Landscapes concert series curated by Kim Williams.
The ghost of Grainger floats up from West Terrace (via mechanical piano) to set the scene for this delightful morning: twenty living fingers will tickle the goanna with some of his best-known tunes and folk-song arrangements; Berio turns folksy, too, in his most delicious and hummable score; and, to begin, the gracious, rarely heard progeny of friends Judith Wright and Margaret Sutherland.
