As Syzygy Ensemble completes its global odyssey, we ask whether travel really does broaden the mind. Major song cycles by Harbison and Abbott suggest to us that we’re wiser and more grounded for having made the journey, while the fleeting, slippery works of Berio and Adès remind us that the rug can still be pulled from under our feet in an instant.
Featured non-Australian music: John Harbison: Book of Hours and Seasons (1975), Thomas Adès: Catch (1991), Luciano Berio: O King (1968)
Featured Australian Works
