Composer Anne Cawrse is inspired by stories, art, nuance, and the fragility of the human condition. Anne’s artistic practice is built around connection between the composer, the performer, and the audience, and a belief that music has the power to express the inexpressible. Anne has an uncanny knack for discovering music hidden within the written word. Her fondness for the lyrical and elegant is heard through her compositions which cover all combinations of acoustic instruments and voices.
Her music has been broadcast and performed around the world, and she is a multiple prize-winner at the Australian Art Music Awards.
Anne is based in Adelaide, South Australia, and is a respected teacher and mentor, and curator of the ‘She Speaks’ Festival of female composers.
