Genevieve Lacey And
Performed by Genevieve Lacey, recorders and Marshall McGuire, harp, Bower is a gentle experience of music and light. Inspired by bowerbirds and their obsessive collecting habits, Bower is a musical haven, conjured from exquisite fragments.
Music old and new, familiar and yet-to-be discovered, sumptuously lit, elegantly staged, and beautifully performed: as a live experience Bower is a 60-minute balm for the soul.
“Bower bears witness to the inquisitive creativity and brilliant artistry of two extraordinary musicians.”Tony Way, The Age/Sydney Morning Herald, 2021
Bower, the album released on ABC Classic last year, was the winner of the 2021 ARIA Award for Best Classical Album.
In August 2022, Bower won the award for Best Independent Classical Album at the 2022 AIR Awards presented by the Australian Independent Record Labels' Association.
Featuring in Bower, Bree van Reyk's work, threaded in amongst the infinite threading, has been nominated for the 2022 Art Music Award for Chamber Music Work of the Year.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
Bower was first presented live by Musica Viva Australia at the Melbourne Recital Centre on 10 July 2021.
