Sydney Symphony Principal Oboe Diana Doherty performs music by Australian composer Ross Edwards.
Ross Edwards is one of Australia’s most celebrated composers, and he’s famous for drawing on the sounds of the natural environment of Australia to inspire his spirited music. Ulpirra
takes its name from an Indigenous word meaning ‘pipe’ or ‘flute’. It’s Ross Edwards at his short and snappy best, with its dance-like rhythms and melodies that ripple with the energy of birdcalls in full voice.
