Latest Episode: Genevieve Lacey and Paul Kildea: The Anatomy of a Duet
In this episode of the Chamber of Musical Curiosities, Artistic Director Paul Kildea talks with the Australian artist Genevieve Lacey. As he eloquently notes in the introduction, to simply refer to Genevieve as ‘a recorder player, is missing the point’, as she has forged a rich career, with credits as a performer, composer, and curator. In this conversation, Genevieve reflects upon the emergence of her artistic practise, talks about how ‘a life in art is one of constant evolution’, and reflects on the genesis, and importance of Musica Viva’s Future Makers program. She doesn’t leave without revealing tantalising information about the new collaboration she’s developed with her friend and colleague, the harpist Marshall McGuire, which they’ll be touring for Musica Viva in 2021.
