The Grevillea Diary
Thursday March 22, 6.30pm
We were to begin 2017 with the World Premiere of John Peterson's cycle:
Songs for the Moon (written for us at our request). Alas David injured one of his fingers - blame the recalcitrant window sash - so we had to postpone that event and, in fact, gave the premiere of the first four songs at our April Grevillea concert.
Now that John Peterson has finished the entire cycle, adding a final song and two piano interludes, we will be giving the World Premiere of Satellite of Love and Fear, accompanied by two more of John's vocal cycles; Eternity's Sunrise for voice and piano and Of Quiet Places for voice and guitar. Grant Sambells will be playing the guitar. If you are able to attend then you will not only hear three lovely cycles by John Peterson but get a preview of Grant's playing before you hear him as our guest in June.
The performance will commence at 6:30pm at UNSW in Room 334 of the Webster Building. There is a lovely new Steinway so it should be a beautifully tuned music event.
