Looking forward to this concert at LSO St Lukes on the 9th July London's all-Australian chamber orchestra Ruthless Jabiru makes their dynamic City of London Festival debut with a programme honouring their esteemed patron, Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe. A selection of Sculthorpe miniatures shares the platform with two vintage American masterworks, Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and Copland's Appalachian Spring, parallelling the iconic soundworlds of these two vast countries.
With the stunning young Australian Soprano, Emma Pearson singing Knoxville: Summer of 1915 Op 24 by Samuel Barber. A former winner of the More than Opera award for a contract at the Hessisches Staatstheater in Wiesbaden. http://www.mto-gaog.com/
