The Composers’ Fund: Sadie Harrison
Sadie Harrison’s music performed and broadcast internationally with works released to critical acclaim on Naxos, NMC, Cadenza, Sargasso, Toccata Classics, BML, Divine Art/Metier, and Clarinet Classics. For several years, Sadie also pursued a secondary career as an archaeologist – reflecting this interest in the past, many of Sadie’s compositions have been inspired by the traditional musics of old and extant cultures with cycles of pieces based on the folk music of Afghanistan, Lithuania, the Isle of Skye, the Northern Caucasus and the UK.
The Composers’ Fund will support Sadie’s work as the first Composer-in-Residence to the Keunstler Bei Wu Sculpture Park, Berlin, a post evolving over two years within a vibrant, pioneering gallery-studio environment. Located in the marshlands of Wessenberg, the Park’s focus is on German and Australian sculpture with concerts exploring the relationships between music, artworks and landscape. Initial 2017 commissions include a ‘Baroque’ concerto, Weimar Cabaret music, and a depiction of the Australian landscape for the Inauguration of an Indigenous Art Exhibition. https://www.uymp.co.uk/news/sadie-harrison-composer-in-residence-at-sculpture-park-wesenberg
