Six World Premieres In Echoes of the Garden Palace


Hear works from five composition students from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in a free public performance in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens.  

As part of a collaboration with Kaldor Public Art Projects and Sydney-based Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones, the composition students have created sonic responses to Jones’s vast sculpture barrangal dyara (skin and bones), that recalls Sydney’s Garden Palace for the 200th birthday celebrations of the Royal Botanic Gardens.

There are six world premieres interspersed with short arrangements from Paulo Giorza’s Cantata composed for the opening ceremony of the Sydney International Exhibition in 1878. 

Elizabeth Jigalin: That Sound Afar
Paolo Giorza: Cantata [Prelude]
Fenn Idle: In Memory Of The Eastern Suburbs Brass Band
   (Whose Instruments Perished In The Garden Palace Fire Of 1882)

Mimi Kind: Along the Lines of the Garden Palace
Paolo Giorza: The Belles of Australia Waltz No.5
David Reaston: Garden Belles
Amina Salihbegovic: Construction
Paolo Giorza: Cantata [Part 1 Chorus]
Damien Ricketson: Stole Like the River of a Dream

Admission is free.
