Ruthless Jabiru, Lovelady/ Pearson/ Sculthorpe/ Barber/ Copland/ City of London Festival - InstantEncore

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.
