Event Details

Takemitsu’s Nostalghia, a meditative tribute to the last film by Russian cinematic giant Andrei Tarkovsky, recalls the director’s signature scenes of darkness and isolation, whilst Schoenberg’s Accompaniment to a Cinematographic Scene – written to accompany a dramatic scenario of his own imagining – viscerally evokes danger, fear and catastrophe within just eight intense minutes of music.

Nico Muhly’s Cello Concerto, acclaimed by The Guardian for its ‘sharply heard orchestral palette’, is performed by British cellist Oliver Coates, to whom it is dedicated. Blow Bright, a darkly atmospheric work from Icelandic composer Daníel Bjarnason – also known for his collaborations with post-rock group Sigur Rós – concludes the program.

This concert will also include a new work by a young Australian composer Harry Sdraulig, commissioned as part of the MSO’s Cybec 21st Century Australian Composers Program.
