About Lake Dreaming
Australian composer Ross Edwards has written the piece Lake Dreaming for Lifeflow and the piano duet, Bonnie Brown and Louisa Breen, who gave such a successful concert for us in 2016. It’s a meditation piece for two pianos which captures the different moods, the mirror-like quality, the lights and reflections of a lake.
Here is how Ross describes the piece:
“As I worked on this piece, the image of a lake and its abundant symbolism seemed to match the contemplative nature of the music that was unfolding. A lake’s surface is often likened to a mirror which reflects an image of self-contemplation. Lakes have always beguiled poets and intrigued psychologists, for whom they are likely to represent creativity and the unconscious.”
