Lullabies for Zander

 

‘Lullabies for Zander’ is a musical portrait for pianist Therese Milanovic’s firstborn, Zander. While some babies slumber to nursery rhymes, Zander’s dreams are coloured with sounds of exploring and rehearsing new music.

In this latest program for International Women’s Day 2018, Muses Trio celebrate the wonder of mother earth and the power of cradle song with new music by Gila Carcas, Joyce Tang, Australians Nicole Murphy, Elena Kats-Chernin and Hilary Kleinig, and music of the past by Clara Schumann, Rebecca Clarke, and Luise Adolpha le Beau. This concert featured two world premieres inspired by divine creation and lullaby, ‘Songs of Silent Earth’ by Natalie Williams, and ‘Afflatus’ by Natalie Nicolas.
