Event Details

The program includes Don Banks's work Nexus for orchestra and jazz ensemble, and Bramwell Tovey's own work Urban Runway.

Tovey says of the piece: 'The concept grew out of a conversation with friends concerning the colourful idiosyncrasies of those who offer their patronage to the fashion houses on Fifth Avenue in New York or Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles.

'New clothes, even those unseen inside designer shopping bags, appear to influence the gait of shoppers as they strut along the sidewalk. With a little imagination the listener might care to speculate on the characters depicted in the music.'

Featured non-Australian music: Adams, Tovey
