Shed Series: Unwound
Hamish McKeich Conductor Russel Walder Oboe The finale of the 2019 Shed Series presents a programme of light, relaxing music to entertain as we head towards the end of the year. Grammy Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams' Become River is a beautiful and meditative piece of music inspired by the natural world and is part of a trilogy of works including Become Ocean and Become Desert. Derek Bermel's Canzonas Americanas conjures up the North American continent with elements of Native American blues, rock, funk and other inspirations, including American music giant Aaron Copland. French composer Darius Milhaud will take the audience to Brazil with Saudades do Brasil, a mesmerising musical journey through the sights and sounds of Rio de Janeiro.
