This CD has been produced to support the work of the Bob Brown Foundation. It includes two works by Michael Kieran Harvey and one by violinist Emily Sheppard.
The idea for this CD originated in the concert launch of Arjun von Caemmerer’s Vice Versa new & selected poems (Collective Effort Press, 2016) on 9 October 2016 at the Tasmanian Conservatorium. Michael Kieran Harvey premiered his Portrait of Bob Brown (2016), an especially appropriate choice given Michael’s, Arjun’s and violinist Emily Sheppard’s mutual high regard for the man and his extraordinary work.
Also featured at this concert (and thus included on this recording), were Emily’s solo piece for viola and voice, Aftermath (2016), inspired by her visit to Tasmania’s threatened Tarkine region, and the premiere of Harvey’s piano/violin version of Homage to Liszt (2016), re-written especially for Emily’s unique artistic capability.
