Event Details

Join the CSO Chamber Ensemble for a captivating and unforgettable experience as they present the Australian premiere of Simon James Phillips' immersive composition, Perto Do Ar (Close to Air). Trained as a classical pianist, Phillips is a musical polymath: his creative work spans experimental, classical, electronic and improvised music. Perto Do Ar explores an expansive sonic and spatial landscape, rich in complex overtones and luminous sound colour. This thrilling work demands a highly resonant acoustic; at particular points, the players are directed to move around the audience and the performance space. Premiered in Lisbon’s resonant Panteão Nacional (National Pantheon), this piece will take on an exciting, new form as our musicians make use of the spacious Gandel Atrium at the National Museum of Australia.

Further information for this event is available online at the event's website or by phone on 0262 626 772 or by email to tickets@cso.org.au
