Urban Songs is about life in an urban environment. Sometimes you're alone in a crowd, sometimes there's a lack of privacy; and sometimes you belong to something larger than yourself.
'And There I Was' - Find your own rhythm amongst the noise of the city, find your place in the sights and sounds.
'Streetlights and Lost Souls' - Flickering streetlights stand sentinel over a lonely streetscape at night, home only to the homeless.
'The Union' - The rhythm of the city, the racing of the trains, the tramping of the commuter army, the heartbeats of a million people.
Instrumentation: 2 violins, viola, cello.
Duration: 18 min.
Contents note: I. And there I was -- II. Streetlights and lost souls -- III. The union.
Commission note: Local Heroes Commission from the Melbourne Recital Centre
