Includes program notes.

"I originally conceived this sprightly outburst of present-centred joy for bass clarinet and percussion. As it seemed to catch on rather well in that form, I made this alternative version in the hope of widening its audience. Composed especially for saxophonist Amy Dickson, who premiered it with the Elias String Quartet during the 2017 Musica Viva Festival, Sydney, Bright Birds and Sorrows was generously commissioned by Kim Williams AM. After the premiere I made some substantial cuts and revisions, resulting in the present form." - Ross Edwards
