Australian composer David Kotlowy's two sensual song-cycles celebrate love, loss and passion in verses from Ancient Japan to Modern Indonesia. Koibitotachi (The Lovers) is inspired by the Japanese tanka poetic form, imagining a correspondence between a Japanese woman and a French man. The multicultural dialogue of the text, French and Japanese, is reflected in references to French composers who were themselves influenced by the East, and sonorities of the Japanese biwa and koto. Superbly performed by Duo Trystero - tenor Robert Macfarlane and guitarist Alex Tsiboulski. Lagu Cinta (Love Songs) is a contemporary reinvention of traditional Indonesian art-forms. It brings together the gamelan's distinctive sonorities and the love poems of Sitok Srengenge, one of Indonesia's most acclaimed living poets. The songs are a dynamic union of rhythm, melody and harmony, beautifully performed by soprano Kate Macfarlane, tenor Robert Macfarlane, and Gamelan In Situ.
