|Two flutes and piano
The two outer sections of the music are frenetic, but not too aggressive, while the middle is more tranquil - like the calm in the eye of the storm, a melancholic respite before the storm resumes. Composed in 2001 it was winner of the Australian Flute Festival Composition Competition in 2012 held in Canberra.
Jessica Lee began her musical studies with piano lessons at the age of four and picked up the flute a few years later. She completed her Bachelor of Music in 2005, graduating from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with 1st Class Honours. Following graduation, she performed with the Australian Youth Orchestra and the Sydney Sinfonia and was a finalist in the 2MBS-FM Young Performer of the Year Awards 2007. She moved to London the following year to pursue postgraduate studies at the Royal College of Music. Highlights during her time overseas include participating in the London Symphony Orchestra’s side-by-side scheme and performing with the RCM Baroque Orchestra under the direction of Sir Roger Norrington in the BBC Proms 2012 Saturday Matinee series at Cadogan Hall.
Since her return to Australia in 2013, Jessica has worked with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra and has been accepted onto the casual player lists of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Melbourne and Queensland Symphony Orchestras. Although she is currently more active as a performer and teacher, Jessica has always found composition extremely satisfying on an intellectual and creative level. She began writing little pieces as a child and since then, some notable highlights have included being one of only 25 HSC candidates nominated for composition throughout NSW for Encore 2001 and having her choral work ‘Song of Federation’ performed by a massed choir of over 400 students at a Combined Catholic Schools music festival held at the Sydney Town Hall. Jessica is a Wirripang New Composition composer.
