This final concert in the Australian Festival of Chamber Music’s online festival features the Nexas Quartet, Australia’s supreme saxophonist group making a return visit to Townsville for AFCM in 2021. Nexas have created a fabulous program for us, presenting some traditional French repertoire interspersed with lively works from the New World and ending with their own composition. Brilliant!
