Event Details

This 25th Anniversary program celebrates the essence of music and musical experience shaped by two vital forces: the desire for stillness and peace against the urge to express.

At the heart of Britten’s Ode to St Cecilia lies the alluring spell of beauty for beauty’s sake. Whereas the quill of St Godric, penning down his modest triptych to the Mother and Son, touched upon an inner beauty that is indefinable and unsurpassable.

Here is a selection of works that range from mystery to mockery and prod at the edges of the human ear and heart.

Featured non-Australian music: Sch├╝tz, Hassler, Cage, Britten, Byrd et al
