Event Details

Finland-based Australian pianist Aura Go presents a rich musical journey that delves deep into the realm of mythology and resurfaces with an infectious celebration of the natural world.

Acclaimed Finnish composer Esa-Pekka Salonen’s gripping piano work Dichotomie receives its first Australian performance, framing the powerful (and at times even frightening!) depictions of spirits and spirituality by countrymen Pehr Henrik Nordgren and Einojuhani Rautavaara, Australia’s renowned Larry Sitsky, and seminal American composers Henry Cowell and George Crumb.
