Aster was expertly composed, in 1995, by Sadie Harrison. The piece was written in 6 different movements, all varying in texture and mood; all six movments featured on Harrison's 2001 album, Taking Flight.
Australian born freelance composer and performer, Sadie Harrison’s unique fusion of elements from indigenous Lithuanian music and poetry with her own modernist, often abrasive, style have led her to be compared with Bartok, but with her own warmth and grandeur.
Since 2012 Harrison has been working along side a long list of well accomplished musicians; Paul Carey, Peter Sheppard Skaerved, Sergej Okrushko, Alex South, Duncan Honeybourne are among many who have had the privilege work with Harrison so far. Performances of Harrison's works have been given across the world by Lontano, London Chamber Symphony, Music Projects/ London, Ixion, Okeanos, Bournemouth Sinfonietta, Kokoro and the St. Christopherus Chamber Orchestra, and many others.
