In June 2016 I produced a concert at the Scots Church in Melbourne to premiere my piano concerto Mountain Ash The first work in the program was Moonah and Whirlpool, a tone poem for orchestra based on the poem Argonauta nodosa Brian Walters. Argonauta nodosa was recently published in Brian’s new collection of poems Angels, like laundry. The tone poem reimagines the love story between the Moonah tree and the Whirlpool.
My CD release in March 2019 pairs the recording of that beautiful performance with Five Lullabies, performed by Nicholas Buc. Five Lullabies is a suite of 5 short piano works celebrating new life and the triumph of a dear friend over enormous odds.
