Andrew Ford: "Once upon a time there were two brothers..."
Story-telling lies behind Ford's dramatic new flute solo Once upon a time there were two brothers... Written specially for the talents of Sally Walker, the performance requires Walker to narrate the Grimms' tale 'The Singing Bone', as well as turn her instrument, sonically, into the bone in question. She will play it for the first time at the Melbourne International Arts Festival on 21 October.
The concert program also includes Ford's Cradle Song for string quartet, interpreted by the Shanghai Quartet.
Featured non-Australian music: Penderecki Quartet No. 3, ‘Leaves of an Unwritten Diary’, Haydn Quartet in D major, Op. 20, No. 4
