February 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

wendy hiscocks cam

The spirit of the Australian outback sets the scene for Celebrating Australian Music (CAM)’s lunchtime recital for flute and piano, which features music by living composers from one of the largest countries on Earth.

Alongside these enchanting and accessible works is a musical tribute to the music of French composer Gabriel Fauré (1845 – 1924) whose music has been described as the link between Romanticism and the modernism of the 20th century.

Flautist Mark Underwood and pianist/CAM director Wendy Hiscocks will present Australian music tinged with oriental and south-east Asian influences, alongside music resonating to the sounds of jazz. Distinguished Australian composer and music educator, Anne Boyd wrote her much performed Goldfish Through Summer Rain in 1979. Air on Pipe is by composer and flautist Brett Thompson, who studied in both Australia and London.

Also featured will be Mark Underwood’s enjoyable Waltzing Matilda Variations. The other work in the programme will be Keshovati by Wendy Hiscocks, which was written in 2002 and based on a Bengali folk tale. This music theatre work for solo flute is framed by a short narrative.
