Event Details

Carl Vine is considered one of the greatest and most original Australian composers. Symphony No.4.2, one of his most compelling works, is full of textural and rhythmic contrasts ranging from dominant percussion sections to lush string harmonies.

Villa-Lobos pioneered lush jungle effects in his orchestration and influenced a whole generation of composers including Messiaen. Amazonas conjures up the region and river in a compact tone poem full of colour, light and exotic sounds.

Featured non-Australian music: Villa-Lobos
