Event Details

This event is part of the Incredible Floridas - Chamber Landscapes concert series curated by Kim Williams.

Calm and simplicity pervade the final concert, with Kats-Chernin channelling Satie, an endearing wind-swept song for alto flute, violin and cello seagulls from Sculthorpe’s final years, and, from his heyday, the first flush of his romance with Balinese music, Tabuh tabuhan. Enigmatic meditations by Meale written shortly before sickness and Mullumbimby consumed him, reveal how endless and varied was his quest for musical beauty.
