Little Gifts was expertly composed in 1998 by Sadie Harrison. This piece was first performed at the ICA, London, by Alison Wells and Ian Mitchell, in 1998.
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 alongside 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 of working 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.
