Now that we're so close to the premiere of Michael's Goodwin Flute Concerto, featured in our new trailer, I thought I'd better introduce you to the composer himself! I have really enjoyed collaborating with Michael; it has been a true pleasure and inspiration. The music he has written for A Sunburnt Country is very special and strongly ties to his concept of Australian identity and his connection to his Macedonian heritage, which is very apparent in parts of the piece. I didn't know what to expect when hearing it live for the first time - that is the challenge with playing completely new, unrecorded music - but I was so pleased with how the texture of the ensemble worked with the flute and how moved I was by the writing, even in its early stages. This is an exciting flute concerto like no other - something new for every audience.
Introducing, Michael Bakrnčev!
