The Hush Foundation’s latest commissioning and recording project, Collective Wisdom, saw six emerging and six established composers pair up to write music inspired by their time spent with young people with chronic illness and mental health challenges in children’s hospitals across Australia. The project has resulted in an album, recorded by the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s ACO Collective, directed by ACO’s Principal Violin Helena Rathbone, which will launch at events in Sydney and Melbourne. The composers commissioned are Matthew Hindson and Katia Beaugeais, Paul Stanhope and Natalie Nicolas, Stuart Greenbaum and Caerwen Martin, James Ledger and Olivia Davies, Elena Kats-Chernin and Rachel Bruerville, Maria Grenfell and Thomas Misson. Limelight spoke to Grenfell, composer, senior lecturer and Head of the University of Tasmania’s Conservatorium of Music, and Misson, a Hobart-based composer and pianist.
