Event Details

Taking the title and spirit of Rebecca Solnit’s 1998 book A Book of Migrations, Brisbane composer Liam Flenady’s new concert-length work is written specifically to showcase the impressive talents of multi-instrumentalist and composer Matthew Horsley.

Ideas of cultural identity, division and alienation are drawn from Solnit’s tracing of the Irish diaspora into a metaphoric meditation. Flenady fashions a striking premiere that incorporates text from the Mediaeval Irish epic poem ‘Buile Shuibhne’ with uilleann pipes and electronics.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
