Event Details

Erkki Vehtheim is widely known as a major talent in a new generation of Australian music - active as a performer, improviser and composer in an extraordinary range of styles and contexts. As violist and violinist he has performed internationally with some of the leading ensembles and orchestras in Europe, and across Australia in groups from the Australian Chamber Orchestra to free jazz and his own band Roadkill Rodeo. Most recently his composition Tract, commissioned for the Adelaide Festival in 2010, was performed in Melbourne at a concert of the Australian Art Orchestra and the Australian National Academy of Music. This work, boldly combined a large sculptural score for instruments with a live-performed Aboriginal song cycle from Arnhem Land, and included an active role for the composer as improvising violinist. His concert for Astra will extend from Bach's Chaconne to virtuoso solo works by the renowned Brisbane based violinist-composer John Rodgers, together with Veltheim's own improvisations, which incorporate singers from the Astra Improvising Choir

Featured non-Australian music: J.S.Bach
