‘If there is such a thing as a recorder rockstar … Crossley is that.’ Fish Fine Music
Fragments brings together highlights from celebrated musician Alicia Crossley’s solo albums Addicted to Bass and Alchemy. Known for her virtuoso playing, both albums have received acclaim throughout Australia.
Fragments is a mix of historic and contemporary works for recorder. Crossley’s programming of old and new finds new resonance in past genres, intertwining with electronics to highlight the versatility of her playing. The repertoire spans over two centuries giving the audience a full spectrum of works.
