World premiere, CSO commission

The first concert in the 2021 Australian Series opens with Brenda Gifford’s Miriwa (Sky), a contemplation of the vast canopy spoken in the ancient beauty of the Yuin language.

This is followed by The Moon by Peggy Polias, which charts an enigmatic course across the night sky, from new moon to waning crescent.

The program also features Deborah Cheetham’s Song for Dulka Warngiid, the fourth work in the composer’s Woven Song series. Inspired by the painting and tapestry of the same name and sung in the language of the Kayaldild people, the work transports us to the tiny Bentinck Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria.

This concert culminates in a world premiere from Moya Henderson, a composer devoted to exploring the soul and culture of Australia’s 60,000-year history.
