“Insects are born from the sun – they are the kisses of the sun.” (Alexander Scriabin)

“I find myself often returning to music I love the most – abstract music that magically conjures up imagery and a wordless narrative flow. Beginning with mid-19th Century  Schumann and journeying through to modern composers, I have chosen music that illuminates landscapes, birds, insects, and also humanity. From the forests of Moravia to the cupboards of Australia, this music can make owls hoot, wings flutter, moths flicker, flies buzz, cicadas emerge, and perhaps even sun shine. This concert celebrates mother nature through the piano. ” (Lisa Moore)
