Compelling soloists, unusual voices and romantic whimsy - listen to QSO players take the lead as concerto soloists, tune in to the timbral possibilities of their instruments and how remarkably skilled these musicians are. Enjoy rarely heard concertos celebrating the unique voice of unusual instruments. Matthus’s concerto for timpani is couched in the romantic domain of the whimsical forest. Beginning with a flamboyant tuba solo, Samuel Jones’s final movement springs from the soundprint of an accelerating aeroplane gathering momentum for take off.
Featured non-Australian music: Beckel, Matthus, Samuel Jones
