Songbirds

August 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

An intimate trio setting brings together an array of original chamber works by the who’s-who of Australian composers in Songbirds. As birdsong drifts in on the summer breeze, flute, clarinet and percussion take inspiration from the weird and wonderful sounds of the Australian bush. Gerard Brophy’s impressive ‘Beautiful Birds’ is joined by beguiling pied butcher bird song from Hollis Taylor and Jon Rose alongside a blackbird inspired work from Kate Moore. Songbirds is a journey into nature through an intimate instrumental chamber setting.
