On Reflections


Dr Calvin Bowman is a distinguished composer and performer who has been a prominent figure in Melbourne and the wider Australian classical music scene for many years. A Fulbright scholar and Doctor of Musical Arts from Yale University, his major focus is the composition of art song, with his ‘Touch the Air Softly’ nominated for numerous awards. Calvin is also well known for his extraordinary seventeen hour marathon during the 2009 Melbourne International Festival when he performed the entire organ works of JS Bach in a single sitting, and for which he was nominated for a Helpmann award. Ted Davies talks to Calvin Bowman on Reflections at 4pm Sunday 17 February, repeated at 3pm Friday 22 February.
