Anmerkungen des Komponisten
I had begun composing a symphony about Brisbane, commissioned by the Brisbane Festival, when in January 2011 the tragedy of the Queensland floods struck. I decided to completely rethink the concept and start from scratch. The symphony became my response to the enormously devastating event that cost lives and destroyed so much, but also united people in so many ways. The symphony's four movements were inspired by: 1) the emotional turbulence and noise of the floods, 2) the aftermath, the stories of the survivors 3) the incredible efforts from people around the country, including the Mud Army, coming to help and clean up 4) remembering the dead, reflecting on what had happened, and the powerful optimism that soon emerged to rebuild and move on.
