NORDIC REFLECTIONS

Elgar and Sibelius: two world-famous contemporaries who never met and came from opposite ends of Europe. Both composers wrote choral songs throughout their creative lives and share a number of influences, traits, tensions and peculiarities in their music.

Join us as we travel between the Malvern Hills and Finnish forests, ending in the steamy embrace of Matthew Whittall's gorgeous tribute to a Saturday sauna. Captured in HD, this multi-camera production features a new concert performance alongside exclusive interviews with the conductor and singers.

TIS NATURE'S VOICE

Elgar famously wrote: 'the trees are singing my music -- or have I sung theirs?'. Often his music evokes the sense that nature is speaking directly to the listener, adding a further dimension to his music about the natural world. We explore this phenomenon in other music from Britain, Germany, and the Nordic region where the idea clearly also appealed to composers. We end with a vibrant contemporary Australian soundscape - Sacred Kingfisher Psalms by Ross Edwards.
