Event Details

This September, join UNSW’s acclaimed Burgundian Consort as they present Della terra, an engrossing concert program exploring the beauty, fragility and whimsy of the earth. Program highlights include Debussy’s velvety Trois chansons d’Orleans and the vivid word-painting of Paul Hindemith’s Six Chansons after poems by Maria Rilke. A selection of Monteverdi’s best-known madrigals – songs of love, springtime and the ocean breeze – are sure to delight, while Martin Wesley-Smith’s wickedly humorous Who Killed Cock Robin? is a musical melting-pot of barbershop, doo-wop and show tunes quite unlike anything you’ve ever heard. With member of the Australia Ensemble @UNSW Ian Munro, piano.

Featured non-Australian music: Monteverdi, Debussy, Hindemith
