Immortal Diamond

MSO.LIVE continues its month of Australian music with Immortal Diamond, a new work by multi award-winning Australian icon Paul Grabowsky AO. Borrowing its title from a poem by Victorian-era English poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, Immortal Diamond comprises five sections that explore atmospheres of drama, dissonance, and mysticism. Renowned Australian soprano Lisa Gerrard sings in a floating free style alongside sixteen wordless singers. Though it pays tribute to a nineteenth-century poet, Immortal Diamond speaks to a very contemporary experience. Written during Victoria’s COVID-19 lockdowns, the work, in Grabowsky’s words, ‘can be understood as a secular requiem for those who passed, and a prayer for better days ahead.’
