Come to the official Launch of the Byron Music Society’s 2018 Season, at 1.30 pm in the Byron Community Centre, just before Lullabies for Zander on Sunday 11th March at 3pm. All welcome. A light snack and a glass of bubbly provided.
Lullabies for Zander is a musical portrait for pianist Therese Milanovic’s firstborn, Zander, who arrived in July 2017.
While some babies slumber to nursery rhymes or white noise, Zander’s dreams in the womb were coloured with the sounds of brand new music by Australians Nicole Murphy, Elena Kats-Chernin and Hilary Kleinig, and music of the past by Clara Schumann, a lullaby by Rebecca Clarke, and a cradle song by Luise Adolpha le Beau. Since, he has been immersed in two world premieres by Australians Natalie Nicolas and Natalie Williams, the latter proudly commissioned by a Byron local music lover.
Muses Piano Trio, Christa Powell (violin), Louise King (cello) and Therese Milanovic (piano).
