Event Details

An exploration on how words shape music. What makes a good text for music? Can music elevate a banal text into something transcendent? Are there some words that are too perfect to set to music?

These and other questions will be discussed by Anna Goldsworthy and Andrew Ford as he describes the journey from words to music of his new song cycle Last Words.

New York-based soprano Jane Sheldon will join Seraphim Trio, Helen Ayres, Zoe Knighton and Anna Goldsworthy, to premiere Last Words.

The Australian String Quartet will also perform Andrew Ford's new String Quartet # 5.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body
