Artist in Residence Brett Dean returns to conduct the second program in our contemporary Carriageworks series for 2017.
At the heart of this concert is Brett Dean's Dream Sequence for large ensemble – a magical work that follows a surreal journey from the sensations of drowsiness and the sometimes alarming workings of the subconscious to final awakening. Dean has also invited Finnish-born improvising-violinist and composer Erkki Veltheim and sonic artist James Hullick to write cutting-edge new works especially for the series. Completing the program are two works with mystic-spiritual overtones: Liza Lim's meditation on a fragment of a Sufi melody and Đuro Živković's ethereal "instrumental cantata" inspired by Bach and the "love of the beautiful".
Featured non-Australian music: Đuro Živković
