Commissioned and performed by Vanessa, Lullabies is a concert of deeply personal emotions and soundscapes. Each work is between 3-5 minutes and showcases the composers own take on the essence of the Lullaby. These works range from the intensely personal to dreamy sonorous sounds and a dissonant beginning before a lull. Imagined and performed in front of a backdrop of colours that enhance the soundscape in each piece, the Lullaby program will stun you with its beauty and lull you with its deeply spiritual essence.
The Australian Lullaby project explores the notion of the Lullaby for solo piano. After several chaotic years, it seemed the right time to extend an invitation to composers to write a short, reflective piece for piano. These disparate and yet soothing pieces are to be recorded by the Tall Poppies Label under Belinda Webster next year. Vanessa will reflect the tonalities in the music with the addition of coloured lighting heightening the experience for the listener.Learn more
