Antique gramophone in garden setting

Recorder virtuoso Genevieve Lacey and pianists Aura Go and Tomoe Kawabata welcome in the spring with music entwined with nature.

Musicians have long been inspired by nature. Some by its wildness, some by its geometry. Many attempt to imitate its sounds and patterns, while others distil these into new, abstract forms.

Join Aura Go and Tomoe Kawabata (piano duet) and Genevieve Lacey (recorder) for a gentle, plant-growing musical sojourn in spring. Two pianists in Mueller Hall, one recorder player in Rose Pavilion, weave sounds and words in a homage to nature and its place in art. Through music chosen to play to plants, they soothe botanic and human souls.

There will be a 30-minute performance in each setting, with a short promenade through Melbourne Gardens between the two, and afternoon tea to close.

Old music by Bach, Hildegard von Bingen and Bassano. New, lyrical sounds by Andrea Keller and Ros Bandt.

Presented by Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria.
