Katia Beaugeais's Like Snowdrops You Will Shine for string ensemble features Australian nature sounds to create a calm and peaceful atmosphere to help reduce the stress and anxiety felt by patients and their families in hospitals. The title refers to the delicate white snowdrop flowers that symbolise hope, optimism, courage and new beginnings. This piece was premiered by the Australian Chamber Orchestra Collective and recorded for the ACO Collective/Hush 18 ABC Classics CD.
This work was chosen for the ACO’s 2019 worldwide selected playlist celebrating “Incredible Female Artists”.
Beaugeais states: "Through my music I hope to provide comfort for patients and families in hospital, and for others who are facing a challenging time in their lives."
Performers: Canberra's Musica da Camera string ensemble, conductor Leonard Weiss.
Featured non-Australian music: ANTON ARENSKY Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky, Op. 35a & MAX RICHTER Vivaldi Recomposed
