Youthful Melbourne-based multi-disciplinary organisation, Forest Collective present new works alongside influential composers inspired by the mythology, music and the natural beauty of Scandinavia.
Jean Sibelius and Claude Debussy, known as peers and colleagues, led to the commission of a new composition’s from Forest Collective Artistic Director Evan Lawson and peer, Lisa Illean, who have been strongly influenced by their recent time in the Netherlands and Finland. Contemporary Scandinavian composers, Lars Ekström and Kaija Saariaho will also be featured embodying exquisite contemporary northern European music.
