Conductor Brett Dean
Piano Piers Lane

- Sibelius Scene with Cranes
- Brett Dean Fire Music
- Brahms Piano Concerto No.2

Composer/conductor/violist Brett Dean wrote Fire Music in response to the catastrophic Australian bushfires of 2009. Dean observes, though, that ‘fire can also cleanse and replenish’ and this is vividly pictorial music of destruction and restoration.

New life too in Sibelius’ lovely Scene with Cranes. Originally theatrical music, it accompanied a scene in which a flight of the birds symbolises rebirth.

Tongue firmly in cheek, Brahms told his friends he’d composed ‘a little piano concerto with a teeny-weeny wisp of a scherzo’. In fact, it’s on a symphonic scale, with an enormous solo part and some wonderful solos for horn and cello.
