Two Memorials: Anton Webern & John Lennon

Brett Dean’s dazzling trumpet concerto depicts various aspects of a heroic figure, from confident to introspective. It is performed by the celebrated Swedish soloist for whom it was composed. Australian composer James Ledger pays tribute to Anton Webern and John Lennon, two composers whom he deeply admires, and who died tragically.
