Event Details

A Brief History of Time is a time-lapse experience of the entire weekend of chamber music. In a celebration of our shared experience, brand-new Australian music carries us back to sinuous baroque variations, ethereal medieval tunes, and ends where we began, with the origins of song: Indigenous chant. We hear this ancient music as a living tradition, alongside new songs by young custodians of culture, performed by the entire cast.
