Event Details

Celebrating the life that springs from the Earth

In the final concert of their season, Syzygy Ensemble connect with nature in her truest form with works which celebrate life that springs from the Earth. The architectural shape of tree-branches is transformed into sound in Andrew Aronowicz’s Arborescence, while Johnathan Harvey celebrates the vivid colourfulness of the lotus-flower in his complex quartet. The evening finishes with a new work from Brenton Broadstock, a long-time mentor and friend of Syzygy who has continually assisted in giving the ensemble life, and who has encouraged and enabled the musicians to blossom in a myriad wonderful and unexpected ways. Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Syzygy Ensemble
