Event Details

When Ravel decided to include the saxophone in his orchestra for Bolero he was on to something. A provocative new sound - it was a fad that caught on.

Now, a century later, Australian composer Ross Edwards is putting it out front of the orchestra as a soloist. Our saxophone virtuoso is Amy Dickson, and in Full Moon Dances we get to hear Edwards' irresistible dance-chant style.

There's more dancing and more Ravel in the mercurial Alborada del gracioso - a morning song for a jester - and in the tempestuous climaxes of La Valse, giving Bolero a run for its money!

Featured non-Australian music: Verdi, Ravel
