"AYO Musicians came to the stage with an energy that could power a small city." (Sydney Morning Herald)
Under the baton of the dynamic Nicholas Carter, experience the best of the Australian Youth Orchestra as they bring to life Beethoven’s heart-pounding Eroica and Stravinsky’s neo-classical masterpiece Pulcinella: Suite. Genevieve Lacey joins on recorder for Tüür’s lyrical Whistles and Whispers from Uluru which combines the rich birdsong of the Baltic Sea with the starkly different sounds of the Australian desert. William Barton on didjeridu continues the exploration into our native landscape with his evocative composition Birdsong at Dusk with string quartet. Don’t miss your chance to hear Australia’s best young classical musicians come together with three internationally acclaimed guest artists.
Performers: Australian Youth Orchestra Nicholas Carter, conductor; Genevieve Lacey, recorder; William Barton, didjeridu
