Event Details

A mirage is an optical illusion caused by atmospheric conditions which results in a hallucination. While music is a sonic art-form, the metaphor of mirage, or an ‘imagined truth’, is a beautiful one. Musicians are tasked with the job of sculpting the musical score into a kind of timbral mirage, taking the listener through a metaphoric journey.

The featured composers on this program hail from Australia, America, Ireland, Japan and Estonia. Having journeyed throughout the globe, this performances sonic exploration ends in France with the Australian premiere performance of a newly discovered work by Olivier Messiaen, La Fauvette Passerinette.

Ticket price includes a complementary drink and light refreshments after the performance.
