Joseph K By Tom Basden
Date Wed 1st May 2019 to Sat 18th May 2019
Secret House presents the Australian premiere of Joseph K by Tom Basden.

Directed by Sean O’Riordan

On his thirtieth birthday, Joseph K has his sushi home-delivery intercepted by two unidentified agents who inform him he is under arrest. He has no idea what he's done wrong but he's determined to clear his name. As he tries to make sense of his situation and to confront those who threaten his freedom, Joseph is thrown headlong into a fight against an invisible and illogical law.
 
Inspired by Franz Kafka’s classic novel The Trial, Joseph K tells the story of a man who is arrested and prosecuted for a crime that is never revealed and his subsequent struggle against an inaccessible authority. 

Directed by Sean O’Riordan, Set Design by James Smithers, Costume Design by Hamish Elliot, Lighting Design by Alex Holver, Stage Manager: Milly Grindrod. Cast: Jane Angharad, Matt Bartlett, Georgia Brindley, Michael Brindley, Elouise Eftos, Phoebe Heath, Tim Kemp, Naomi Lees, Deborah Faye Lee, James Smithers and Danen Young.

Sam Holt: Solo exhibition of new works
Date Wed 1st May 2019 to Sat 1st Jun 2019
This May, Artereal Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by Australian artist Sam Holt, titled 'Caught between snorkelling and drowning, we swam'. This latest body of work represents the artist’s first solo exhibition since being awarded the 2017 Marten Bequest and his subsequent relocation to Berlin.

Constructed from old canvases and paintings that the artist has held on to in the studio for years, Sam Holt has taken Pablo Picasso’s maxim that “Every act of creation is first an act of destruction” to heart when creating his latest body of work. Cut up, reassembled, collaged, pieced together, layered, painted over again and sewn into new works, Holt’s latest ‘paintings’ grow out of a process that draws on and remixes his own artistic oeuvre. The result is a series of artworks which act as a visual metaphor for the notion that each and every past decision we have made, no matter how small or seemingly inconsequential they may seem, informs and plays some role in the fabrication of our present reality.

Exhibition opening: 1 May, 6pm – 8pm.

As he tries to make sense of his situation and to confront those who threaten his freedom, Joseph is thrown headlong into a fight against an invisible and illogical law.

Joseph K starts with the hilarity of Fawlty Towers and ends with the horror of Orwell’s 1984. The script is sharp, poignant, funny and disturbing. Reflecting on important current issues - increasing population surveillance, government paranoia, terrorism and the tension between state control and democratic freedoms.

Ocean Talks: Spirit of Adventure
Date Thu 2nd May 2019
Meet Justin Jones, or Jonesy, best known for kayaking 3,000 kilometres across the ditch from Australia to New Zealand with James Castrission in 2007.

Be prepared for Jonesy to take you on an emotional journey in what’s sure to be a fascinating evening of storytelling. From the desperation of being stuck in a current whirlpool in the middle of the ocean – ten metre waves crashing all around, the hunger as your body slowly breaks down in an unrelenting blizzard in Antarctica, and the oppressive heat of the outback as a plague of flies tests your sanity, you’ll be amazed at his stunning adventures.

Jonesy uses experiences from three of his major expeditions in a fun and informative journey into what adventure has to teach everyone, how you can apply it to your own lives and why people need to nurture the adventurous spirit in them.

The evening will be hosted by the Maritime Museum’s Emily Jateff, Curator of Ocean, Science and Technology.

Jane Goodall: Rewind the Future
Date Wed 8th May 2019
Once more gracing these shores is the iconic, inspirational and inimitable Dr Jane Goodall for her Australian tour, Rewind the Future, in May 2019.

The similarities between animals and humans might seem obvious now (see: any major political race or the state of reality television), but this was not always the case. Dr Jane Goodall uncovered the complexity of social and familial life within groups of wild chimpanzees, highlighting the connection between humans and our closest living relatives.

Through her groundbreaking work in Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park, Dr Goodall redefined how scientists interact with the wild, contributing to one of the greatest studies of primates the world has ever seen. She has lamented that Tarzan married the wrong Jane.

Dr Goodall’s quest for animal welfare and conservation is as relevant now as it ever has been. With the shifts in global climate displacing not only chimpanzees but thousands of other species (including humans), her message of compassion and environmental responsibility is incredibly pertinent for 2019 and beyond.

Join Think Inc. and the Jane Goodall Institute Australia in celebrating the amazing life of one of the greatest scientific figures of the time. #ThinkGoodall

Prima Facie
Date Fri 17th May 2019 to Sat 22nd Jun 2019
Winner of the 2018 Griffin Award, 'Prima Facie' By Suzie Miller is an indictment of the Australian legal system’s failure to provide reliable pathways to justice for women in rape, sexual assault or harassment cases. It’s a work of fiction, but one that could have been ripped from the headlines of any paper, any day of the week, so common you could cry.

Sheridan Harbridge stars as Tessa—a criminal lawyer at the top of her game who knows the law permits no room for emotion.

To win, you just need to believe in the rules. And Tessa loves to win, even when defending clients accused of sexual assault. Her court-ordained duty trumps her feminism. But when she finds herself on the other side of the bar, Tessa is forced into the shadows of doubt she’s so ruthlessly cast over other women.

Turning Sydney’s courts of law into a different kind of stage, Suzie Miller’s (Sunset Strip, Caress/Ache) taut, rapid-fire and gripping one-woman show exposes the shortcomings of a patriarchal justice system where it’s her word against his.

Maybe there needs to be a new system.

Directed by Lee Lewis
Starring Sheridan Harbridge

Marsalis also plays Sally Beamish’s serene Under the Wing of the Rock, arranged especially for him by Beamish, in a bluesy translation for saxophone.

Marsalis’s performances alternate with Satu Vänskä taking centre stage in Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, a heady mixture of tango rhythms and ingenious references to Vivaldi’s famous concertos. The concert concludes with Ginastera’s wild Concerto for Strings and Piazzolla’s instantly recognisable Libertango.

Australian String Quartet presents Moore Beethoven Brahms
Date Thu 23rd May 2019
Kate Moore String Quartet no 3* (Premiere Season)
Beethoven String Quartet op 18 no 4
Brahms String Quartet op 51 no 1

A young man brimming with confidence and sure of a bright future: this is Beethoven at the time of creating his first string quartets. His opus 18 no 4 is quicksilver in its variety of moods and characters, thoroughly conveying both technical mastery and compelling artistic personality.

But like an artist who works in mezzotint rather than forging grand canvases, Brahms some of the most sublime and intimate creations that the world had ever heard. His first string quartet is the glorious flowering of his cultivated technique and searching artistry.

These masterworks are complemented by a new work from young Australian composer Kate Moore, also inspired by a fascination for the natural world.

In this indoor plants course for physical and mental well-being, you will discover that indoor plants in your home and workplace not only improve air quality by reducing CO2, pollutants and increase humidity.

Paul Kelly in Thirteen Ways to Look at Birds
Date Sat 1st Jun 2019
Birds have fascinated poets for centuries, not just for their song and flight but as symbols: of hope, freedom, love, communication, peace, luck good and bad, and migration. And what better way to honour them than by sending songs out into the air?

Using the words of John Keats, Thomas Hardy, Emily Dickinson, Judith Wright, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Gwen Harwood, A.D. Hope and others, each poem is its own world - delicate and intimate at times, colossal and soaring at others, with all states in between.

For one performance only, Paul Kelly and James Ledger will be joined by celebrated piano trio Seraphim (Anna Goldsworthy – piano, Helen Ayres – violin and Tim Nankervis – cello) and singer-songwriter Alice Keath to create a unique marriage of electronics, acoustic instruments and the human voice, celebrating winged creatures from the barn owl to the nightingale, from the thornbill to the falcon, from the magpie to the swan.

ADFAS Lecture- 1066 AND ALL THAT: The Bayeux Tapestry – what does it really depict?
Date Sat 1st Jun 2019
Martin HEARD (The Arts Society).

Martin studied History of Art at Manchester University and now devotes his time to researching mainly English eighteenth and late nineteenth century French art and architecture.

The Bayeux Tapestry is one of Europe’s best-known treasures and also one of the greatest works of art from the medieval period. Its survival almost intact over nine centuries is little short of miraculous. Embroidered on linen cloth and using woollen thread, its brilliant colours are undimmed after nearly a thousand years. It is monumental and highly intricate. It is a depiction of the events relating to the struggle for the succession to the English throne from 1064, culminating at the Battle of Hastings in October 1066. The Tapestry itself is in its own right an historical source of the first order, not only for the political crises of these years but also for the social history of eleventh-century life. However, the Tapestry and what it seems to depict still invite speculation, scholarly debate and controversy.

Dvořák’s Symphony No.6
Date Fri 14th Jun 2019 to Sat 15th Jun 2019
Violinist Nemanja Radulović communicates his love of music with every gesture. And he looks and sounds every bit the Romantic virtuoso violinist, cutting a glamorous figure with extravagant mane and high-fashion clothes. The image is backed by serious musical talent and a room-filling sound – as you’ll hear in two love-letters to the violin.

Composer Ravel’s Tzigane was inspired by the flamboyant virtuosity of Hungarian fiddling. Radulović plays the part to perfection. The intense song of Chausson’s Poème is tailored to the violin’s expressive gifts. Its moody volatility hints at a stormy drama and great passion.

Dvořák’s Sixth Symphony is a joyous romp through Bohemia’s forests and meadows – a pastoral symphony. It glows with contentment in a slow movement that ‘sings of the magic of a summer’s night’ and sparkles with the joy of a popular Czech dance. And the concert begins with superb melodies from Bizet’s music for the play The Girl from Arles.

The shock and awe of Beethoven’s Fifth continues to resonate to this day. The extraordinary Xian Zhang conducts this ultimate symbol of symphonic power with her unique ‘dynamism, agility and precision’.

Fate knocks three times at the beginning of Verdi’s ferocious overture to The Force of Destiny, one of the greatest moments in all opera.

Jeff Lang
Date Thu 4th Jul 2019
Australian guitarist-songwriter-vocalist-producer, Jeff Lang has built a reputation for making startling music that is accomplished, intricate, gutsy, melodic and loaded with soul. Often taking unexpected turns, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a stylistically diverse catalog of over 25 albums.

As legions of journalists have written, Jeff is not one to be easily pegged, though in a general sense it’s fair to say he largely trades in roots-oriented rock; wider reaching in collaborations with the likes of roving guitar anthropologist Bob Brozman, American blues-rocker Chris Whitley, India’s desert-dwellers Maru Tarang and world music virtuosos Bobby Singh and Mamadou Diabate. Jeff’s work with the latter won the 2010 ARIA (Australia’s Grammy) for Best World Music Album, while he and Brozman took one home for Best Blues and Roots Music Album in 2002. Jeff received that same award on his own in 2012.

Beethoven’s Fifth
Date Sun 7th Jul 2019
Those first four notes. Three short, one long. Instantly, classical music was atomised, the symphonic form stripped down and readied for an upgrade and a fresh install. Music from a little over two hundred years ago doesn’t get any more primal than this. No wonder it’s the most famous single moment in Western classical music; the point of arrival for every aspiring orchestral player. You haven’t really done the repertoire in earnest until you’ve played Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.

The second Sydney Youth Orchestra concert for 2019 sees the organisation’s Flagship band take on this major artwork in Western culture in what promises to be a revelatory performance under Chief Conductor Alexander Briger. For many in the Orchestra, this will be a moment of first exposure to the Fifth in its complex entirety; the music being as new to them as it was to a bewildered audience in a Viennese theatre back in 1808.

Before Beethoven’s groundbreaking arc of psychodrama, the SYO brings you the portrait of a simpler, more serene world in the orchestral suite from Aaron Copland’s ballet from 1944, Appalachian Spring.

The finale of Saint-Saëns’ ‘Organ’ Symphony pulls out all the stops in one of the most exultant of big tunes for full orchestra and the Concert Hall’s Grand Organ. But there are many other delightful moments in Saint-Saëns’ perfectly constructed magnum opus: rippling pianos, sparkling woodwinds and voluptuous strings from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Chabrier’s España is an irresistible sun-drenched visit to Spain – an image of guitars and flamenco sketched in the brightest colours.

ADFAS Lecture - BREECHES, BONNETS and BAGS: British Fashion in Art through the Centuries
Date Sat 27th Jul 2019
Rosalind Whyte is a Guide and Lecturer at Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the Royal Academy and lectures frequently at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London.

She leads Art Appreciation holidays and has been a guest speaker on many cruises.

Portraits provide a fascinating insight into the changing styles of dress over the centuries. This lecture follows the different fashions as revealed in paintings, looking at dress and accessories, and some of the more ridiculous styles of fashion from the 16th century to the 19th century. In times when Sumptuary Laws prescribed what you could wear, according to your status in society, fashion was much less of a personal choice and more a reflection of social standing.

The colour of your clothing or a plunging neckline could mark you out as belonging to a particular class.

Whilst the ordinary working folk might have longed for a wardrobe full of reds, purples and golds (or, indeed, for a wardrobe at all!), their ‘superiors’ may well have envied them their ability to move freely in their clothes, without the restrictions of ruffs, stuffed sleeves, enormous petticoats, or headdresses the size of small animals … sometimes also containing small animals!

Kirill Gerstein performs Grieg's Piano Concerto
Date Wed 7th Aug 2019 to Sat 10th Aug 2019
Composer Sibelius’ evocation of Finnish legend En Saga (A Saga) emerges from freezing mists of swirling strings and growling brass. Listen as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra perform a piece as dark as a northern winter.

Bracing Scandinavian air permeates Grieg’s piano concerto, billowing though its heart-stirring melodies. Kirill Gerstein, whose formidable technique is matched by his distinctive musicianship, takes on this crowd-pleaser.

And Sydney Symphony Chief Conductor David Robertson leads us on a wild trip in Berlioz’s semi-autobiographical hallucination, Symphonie fantastique. The delirious artist chases his beloved through dreams, ballrooms, the countryside, his own beheading and a witches’ sabbath! Berlioz promised to ‘stagger the world’ with this symphony, and he delivered: this is music of pure sensation.

Ocean Talks: Bligh – Hero or Villain?
Date Thu 8th Aug 2019
Almost universally portrayed as a villain in movies and books, does this view of William Bligh stand up to scrutiny today? This lively debate challenges the stereotype, looking beyond the mutiny on the HMS Bounty to explore the many sides of one of the maritime world’s most infamous figures and skilled seamen.

What’s not in doubt is that Bligh’s life was extraordinary – he caused controversy on land and sea.

Come and judge for yourself as they hear from author Peter Fitzsimmons who will argue Bligh as tyrant and villain, together with Rear Admiral Peter Briggs who will argue that Bligh was a heroic figure and strong leader.

This not-to-be-missed debate will be moderated by the Maritime Museum’s Curator of Environment and Communities Dr Stephen Gapps.

Note: Ticket includes light refreshments and the opportunity to view the museum’s exhibition Bligh – Hero or Villain? from 5pm to 6pm.

Schubert and Liszt
Date Thu 22nd Aug 2019 to Sat 24th Aug 2019
Franz Liszt was an ambitious and innovative musician, creating a radically new sound for the piano and ‘inventing’ the symphonic poem – using the orchestra to freely evoke mood, colour, people and places. Poetry was often his inspiration, and in his Dante Symphony he looked to the Divine Comedy, a towering literary masterpiece.

Enjoy the vividly infernal, voluptuous and heavenly music of Liszt’s work as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra lead them through Hell and Purgatory and on to an angelic song of faith. Along the way they visit famous characters like the tragic Francesca di Rimini. A heavenly choir makes for a truly celestial finale.

And Liszt wraps orchestral finery around one of Schubert’s great solo piano masterpieces, the Wanderer Fantasy, to create a kind of concerto. It’s a poetic vehicle for Louis Lortie’s dazzling insightful and pianism, in a concert that showcases Simone Young’s affinity for richly expressive music.

Australian String Quartet presents Ives Westlake Debussy
Date Wed 4th Sep 2019
Ives, String Quartet no 1 From the Salvation Army
Nigel Westlake, String Quartet no 3* (World Premiere)
Debussy, String Quartet op 10

The music of Charles Ives is made of pictures from a long-lost America, depicted with such vivid immediacy that they seem absolutely alive. Through the magic lantern of his musical imagery, this New England world appears like a nostalgic dream – white-painted churches in autumn forests filled with congregations joyously chanting hymns and spirituals.

Not dissimilar to the inquisition that Ives undertakes, Claude Debussy’s quest to liberate sensuality led to a revolution in French musical identity. His string quartet replaces rigid thematic structures with a free flow of colours, motifs and gestures in the search for melodic rapture, realising his decadent dictum, ‘Pleasure is the Law.’

The vibrant colour and energy for which Nigel Westlake is renowned make his eagerly-awaited new work a splendid companion to Debussy and Ives.

Ocean Talks: Bligh and Extreme Journeys
Date Thu 5th Sep 2019
The question they’ll be asking in this fascinating discussion is: do extreme modern day journeys match the tenacity and skills demonstrated by William Bligh and his loyal men who, in 1789, navigated 6,500 kilometres of treacherous seas eventually reaching safety in Timor?

Join two modern-day adventurers Michelle Lee and Alex Luther as they discuss how they conquered incredible feats of endurance on the open seas. Sydney-based adventurer Alex Luther water-skied 3,699 kilometres from Africa to Italy in under 10 days.

Despite having never previously water-skied Alex was driven by a desire to recreate the same journey his marathon water skiing grandfather, Harry Luther, completed in 1970. Michelle Lee has just returned from completing a two month solo-rowing odyssey across the Atlantic Ocean covering a distance of more than 5,000 kilometres.

In this discussion, Bligh’s dramatic journey of real-life survival will be compared with the experiences of modern day ocean adventurers.
This discussion will be hosted by maritime museum’s senior curator Daina Fletcher.

Note: Ticket includes light refreshments and the opportunity from 5pm – 6pm to view the exhibition Bligh – Hero or Villain? as well as an 80th anniversary exhibit on Oskar Speck’s seven year journey from Germany to Australia.

Holst's Planets
Date Wed 25th Sep 2019 to Sat 28th Sep 2019
Russia comes to London with a concerto by composer Nikolai Medtner, the Russian virtuoso who settled there in the 1930s. Medtner’s music has long been overshadowed by that of his friend Rachmaninoff, but his first concerto revels in the sheer beauty of the piano, spinning fabulous melodies that seem to flow from the soul of the instrument.

Alexei Volodin makes a seductive case for this opulent work. He’s a pianist in the muscular Russian tradition with the soul of a poet, displaying ‘magisterial mental and physical control that serve musical imagination and insight’.

The Planets is a must-hear event under conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy’s baton. The astrological portraits of the celestial bodies are triumphs of dazzling orchestral magic and unforgettable musical imagery – the foreboding march of Mars, the fizzing energy of Mercury, the ethereal voices of Neptune. And the big, uplifting tune for Jupiter was such a hit that it was adapted as the song ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’.

ADFAS Lecture - Venice, Canaletto and his Rivals
Date Sat 28th Sep 2019
Anthony Russell – cultural historian, writer and artist, combines painting with tour lecturing. He also spent six years as a consultant for Luke Hughes advising on the furniture needs of prestigious buildings throughout Britain, including museums, palaces, schools and cathedrals. At the British Museum, he runs outreach events.

Following the National Gallery of London’s exhibition of the same title, this lecture gives a heady mixture of ‘superstar’ painter, immensely rich patrons on the move and a city whose modern face hides behind a romantic mask. Though some were little better than modern hooligans, many a grand tourist was highly sophisticated and had a lasting impact on Venice and how it is perceived today. These are magical paintings by an Italian artist greatly influenced by British taste and Britain boasts the greatest collection of his works, both in public and private hands. While these views depict a serene dreamland, and have always been highly prized, Venice is now in serious trouble and needs a truly global cooperation to save it from sinking forever.

Date Fri 11th Oct 2019 to Sat 16th Nov 2019
Nobody wants to hear that a chef-hatted, multiple-award-winning, ridiculously trendy Wolloomooloo restaurant is fully committed and can’t take a booking.

In an updated version of Becky Mode’s Broadway smash, director Kate Champion and comedy chameleon Michelle Lim Davidson (ABC's Utopia) join forces to serve up a hilarious and fast-paced take on the modern obsession with food.

Date Thu 17th Oct 2019 to Sat 19th Oct 2019
Intoxicating, enveloping and vast, Anton Bruckner’s symphonies are cathedrals of sound. Within these spaces, shadows and shafts of glorious light play and Bruckner’s Seventh performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra is the perfect introduction. It has the time-stopping beauty that defines his music – the long, arching melodies and triumphant climaxes – in a more accessible package.

Donald Runnicles is one of the great Bruckner conductors and a passionate advocate for this rewarding music.

Messiaen’s ardent and ecstatic ‘Forgotten Offerings’ is his orchestral opus one – and, like Bruckner’s music, it points to the infinite in freely floating, iridescent curls of sound.

Much Ado About Nothing
Date Tue 22nd Oct 2019 to Sun 24th Nov 2019
Claudio and Hero are deeply in love.

Beatrice and Benedick would rather swap sassy insults than sweet nothings.

Much Ado About Nothing is a saucy and razor-sharp battle of wits between the bickering Beatrice and Benedick who wield words as weapons, their banter betraying their love for each other.

Claudio however is quickly consumed by envy and his idyllic world threatens to come tumbling down as he humiliates Hero. Beatrice and Benedick must join forces to defend true love – even if they can’t recognise it in themselves.

But will truth and honesty win the day, and does love really conquer all?

Directed by Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans (Julius Caesar) and starring Zindzi Okenyo (Antony and Cleopatra, MTC’s An Ideal Husband) as Beatrice, this Much Ado About Nothing will be a powerful exploration of the struggle for identity and self-knowledge in a male-dominated world. The pursuit of love is framed in a social context that enhances the darker themes in this timeless comic gem.

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare’s contemporary comedies where romance is thwarted by dastardly plots, misinformation, false accusations, broken promises, and bumbling cops. Or is it?
Donald Runnicles conducts Fauré’s Requiem
Date Wed 23rd Oct 2019 to Sat 26th Oct 2019
Composer Richard Strauss harnesses music’s ability to express the inexpressible in Death and Transfiguration, a moving journey into a blazing eternity. And Strauss recalls this youthful work in the serene farewell of Four Last Songs. Strauss’s late masterpiece is sensuously in touch with the joys of life, even as life slips away. The songs luxuriate in the autumnal richness of an opulent orchestra and the beauty of the soprano voice, here the exquisite Erin Wall.

Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem for soprano, baritone, choir and orchestra remembers the dead and consoles the living with music of poignant elegance and heavenly beauty. It is one of the most beloved sacred works in the repertoire – timeless, contemplative and radiant.

American Harmonies
Date Thu 28th Nov 2019 to Sat 30th Nov 2019
From the crashing chords of the beginning to the glittering ecstasy of its finale, composer John Adams’ Harmonielehre has the unstoppable energy of a rocket – or of the levitating oil tanker that Adams saw in the dream that inspired the piece.

Hear this exhilarating symphonic dynamo seduce and astound three decades on, performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring uses wide-open harmonies and folk-like themes to evoke rural America: dignified and spare. This impressionistic music of heart-swelling nobility and vitality is the sound of America.

Christopher Rouse’s forceful gestures and searing colours meet the bassoon’s idiosyncratic persona in his new concerto. Co-commissioned by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, it will be given its Australian premiere by Sydney Symphony's brilliant young Principal Bassoon, Todd-Gibson Cornish.

    Mahler's Klagende Lied
    Date Wed 4th Dec 2019 to Sat 7th Dec 2019
    The charismatic conductor Simone Young is one of Australia’s finest musical exports, at home in opera theatres and concert halls. Her gift for shaping musical narratives and mustering huge forces are valuable assets in Gustav Mahler’s dark and theatrical fairy tale.

    Let Sydney Symphony horns enchant you as they usher into dark forests where two brothers vie for the queen’s hand, with dire consequence.

    Inspired by stories from the Brothers Grimm, Das klagende Lied (The Sorrowful Song) calls for singers, choir and two orchestras (one of them off-stage). It is Mahler’s astonishingly assured opus one, a preview of his epic, kaleidoscopic symphonies. Like those, it bursts with the magic and mystery of nature, and the joys and fears of childhood.
