Dancing with the Birds description

Five of Adelaide’s finest musicians and Elder Conservatorium Faculty – Lucinda Collins (piano), Anna Goldsworthy (piano), Konstantin Shamray (piano), Elizabeth Layton (violin) and Lloyd Van’t Hoff (clarinet) – begin our Daylight Express journey here in Australia, home to some of the world’s most ravishing landscapes and an incredible array of birdlife. The first half of this program takes inspiration from the birdsong and striking vistas of this country with works from Peter Sculthorpe, Nick Russoniello and Ross Edwards. These homegrown soundscapes are juxtaposed with Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, performed in the rarely heard version for two pianos. 

Peter Sculthorpe: Songs of Sea and Sky
Nicholas Russoniello: Werri Dance II
Ross Edwards: Prelude and White Cockatoo Spirit Dance  
Igor Stravinsky: The Firebird

Presented in association with the Elder Conservatorium of Music, The University of Adelaide.

This concert is part of the Daylight Express series.
