Maninyas by Ross Edwards is established as a classic of Australian music, an enchanting evocation of mysterious landscapes, and we welcome back Adele Anthony, one of the most successful and beloved artists.
Worlds of myth and fantasy are explored when the ASO and Arvo Volmer lure us into the adventures of Lemminkäinen, in the vast musical canvas Sibelius created for this Finnish wild child. The Suite ranges from the exotic delights of the tempting maidens of Saari, to the soulful strains of The Swan of Tuonela and triumph of Lemminkäinen’s return home, some of the most viscerally exhilarating music ever composed.
Featured non-Australian music: Sibelius, Mendelssohn
