Anna McMichael - violin
Tamara-Anna Cislowska - piano

Lullabies (or berceuses) have have been around as long as humans have been singing their children to sleep.

This CD presents a unique collection of (mostly) modern lullabies, many written for this project. Works by Australian composers David Chisholm, Brett Dean, Elena Kats-Chernin, Cor Fuhler, Kate Moore, Graeme Koehne and Andrew Ford sit alongside new works by Korean composer Seung-Ah Oh, Dutch composer Peter Andriaansz and American composer Robert Ashley. Works by Ravel, Sibelius, Enescu, Szymanowski and Stravinsky complete the collection, integrating the old with the new in this genre

Apart from the delectable playing of Anna McMichael and Tamara-Anna Cislowska, this CD also features some unique extended piano sounds from Fuhler’s music-box inventions, and a glass bead mobile in Moore’ work.
