Event Details

“Instruments of the breath are closest to the heart. Making music from the act of breathing is the earliest form of alchemy: the breath that keeps us alive becomes the music which feeds our souls” - Jane Rutter

In this fascinating concert, legendary Australian flautist Jane Rutter plays 10 solo gold, silver, bamboo, classical & ethnic flutes & whistles.

Acclaimed world-wide for her mastery of the flute, with several No#1 albums and ARIA nominations, Jane Rutter was awarded the prestigious French medal Chevalier des Arts et Lettres in 2016. She is a classical free spirit who has devoted her life to French flute playing in which the flute is perceived as a 'voice'.

Flute Spirits & The Seasons takes you on an international journey with 'Spring' from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi, Indian ragas, Irish melodies, and works by Debussy, Devienne, Vaughan Williams, Irving Berlin, Sarah Hopkins, Jane Rutter and Ross Edwards: flute pieces mystically connect the Australian Dreamtime, European classical music and the universal appeal of the flute.

The performance is enhanced with accompaniment by didjeridu, electronic loops, flute samples and linking prose by Rumi, Patrick White and Anaïs Nin.

Explore the art of the Salon with us over 3 concerts including Flute Spirits and The Seasons, Composers In Exile, and I Love Paris. GROUP 4+ $35 30 UNDER 30 $30 (CONDITIONS APPLY) PACKAGE PRICES AVAILABLE WHEN BUYING TICKETS FOR 2 OR 3 SHOWS
