Whether ephemeral and spontaneous or painstakingly considered, solitary decisions can change the world. Beethoven did just that when he uprooted to Vienna to write piano trios that would ultimately revolutionise classical music. Likewise, in the realm of sport, Australian cricketer Richie Benaud’s cool captaincy and decision-making led to one of the most thrilling match conclusions of all time. Australian composer David John Lang’s new work for the Benauds captures the unforgettable drama of the 1960 ‘Tied Test’ in music.
