A Piece of Quiet is an album of unrivalled musical delight: a collection of songs featuring the words of Australian children, set to music and performed by Lior, The Idea of North and Elena Kats-Chernin.
A Piece of Quiet is the 16th volume in Hush’s acclaimed album series. Originally developed by Dr. Catherine Crock AM to reduce stress and anxiety felt by both patients and their families in hospitals, the Hush music collection is now played in hospitals, homes and shared spaces across the globe.
The album is inspired by stories of young children – both sick and well. Singer-songwriter Lior and vocal quartet The Idea of North, along with renowned composer and pianist Elena Kats-Chernin, consulted Australian children for lyrical guidance; questions posed about their lives spawned responses filled with humour, wonder, excitement and surprising wisdom. From these conversations grew a collection of music that conveys the children’s feelings, hopes and dreams in a way that resonates equally with adult listeners.
These ARIA-award winning musicians are joined by the Goldner String Quartet, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s principle oboist Diana Doberty and cor anglais Alexandre Oguey, and a range of other distinguished performers.
