Sacrifice - The Lost Songbirds of the Somme
A Flowers of War Event
Music created in war and played in peace – a concert to celebrate the music of twelve musicians from six nations (Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Britain, Germany and France) who were lost or injured at the Somme, 100 years ago. Hear beautiful and rarely played songs, an elegy, musical compositions and pipe tunes all connected with the Battle of the Somme.
The Flowers of War project is directed by ANZAC Centenary Fellow Christopher Latham, who was responsible for the best-selling Gallipolli Symphony broadcast last year in Istanbul, and on ABC TV.
The free discussion with Chris Latham and historian Joan Beaumont at 6.30pm will focus specifically on this conflict and how that trauma affected the future history of the nations involved.
Performed by: Andrew Goodwin tenor, Anton Wurzer accordion, Jason Craig bagpipes and the Sculthorpe String Quintet: Chris Latham, Veronique Serret, violins, Tor Fromyhr viola, David Pereira cello
