Last December I was delighted to perform with Lontano to record a CD of works by British-Australian composer Jennifer Fowler. Lines Spun features six of her works, four of which I am performing in.
Jennifer Fowler was born in Australia in 1939; she moved to England in 1969 and has forged a very successful path as a free-lance composer since then. Over the years she has won several international prizes, and her work has been performed in Europe, Australia and Asia. Her output, which includes orchestral, chamber and instrumental works and vocal compositions, shows a composer with an individual voice within the contemporary mainstream. The works on this album are all receiving their premiere recording.
