Internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble The Australian Voices premieres ‘Horizon’, the new anthology of stunning and evocative choral compositions next month right here in Brisbane.
In the magnificent and inspirational setting that is The Cathedral of St Stephen's, the country's most innovative choir presents a unique musical expression of a cappella artistry. The Australian Voices paints a rich aural tapestry of the vivid autumnal sky as it touches, caresses and frames people, culture, landscape and sea. In two premiere performances, The Australian Voices, under the direction of Gordon Hamilton, blends the shapes, hues and moods of the season in a soaring and uplifting vista that rises to touch the omnipresent sky.
This recital spans a vast catalogue of experiences from Rachmaninov’s stunning Bogoroditse Devo to the premiere of spectacular, contemporary works from the next generation of Australian composers. Who would have thought a choir would be singing about Facebook and Julian Assange! The Australian Voices continues to expand the dimension of expectations – always promising to excite, surprise and inspire. These thrilling performances are not to be missed.
Featured non-Australian music: Rachmaninov, Biebl, Bruckner
