Rebecca MacCallion and I are thrilled to announce the premiere of my new song cycle, based on the poetry of legendary Australian poet Henry Lawson.
Commissioned by Dr Philip Dutton on behalf of Burgmann College at the Australian National University, this 7-song cycle draws on Lawson's more intimate and emotive verse to tell the story of restless love and a broken heart.
Much loved poems like 'On the Night Train', 'The Things We Dare Not Tell', and 'After All' frame the centrepiece of the cycle - a ballad on 'The Bush Girl.'
The cycle will be premiered on 3 September 2016 at Burgmann College, the Australian National University, in celebration of the College's 45th anniversary. While this is not a public event, further concert dates will be announced on this website soon.
