Product details

This piece of original music is my humble tribute to an awesome human who has been an inspiration to millions, and a lifelong courageous warrior for the environment. I hope this music conveys something of the struggle, the power, the fearlessness, the intelligence, the humanity and the uncompromising integrity and vision of its subject. Ferenc Liszt and Béla Bartók each wrote musical portraits of their Hungarian national heroes. Bob Brown is a venerable Australian hero, whose cause and impact however transcends national boundaries. Commissioned by Dr Arjun von Caemmerer and dedicated to eco-warrior/violinist Emily Sheppard, the work is in five sections that reflect on the turbulent, courageous and serene complexities of Brown's life through the resonances of a piano and violin narrative.
