2016 BIFEM opens with the world premiere of two new Australian double concerti. Sydney composer Jack Symonds conducts his Decadent Purity, a new work commissioned by Viola d’amoriste James Wannan. Parisian conductor Maxime Pascal returns for his third appearance at BIFEM to create the hyper-flamboyant Harp Guitar Double Concerto by BIFEM’s founder and director David Chisholm. Bendigo’s lauded ensemble Argonaut makes a quantum leap to a 29-piece chamber orchestra in this much anticipated fourth edition of BIFEM.
