Max Bruch’s Serenade for Strings takes tunes and themes from Swedish folk music and develops them into a sweeping orchestral work. With the musicians of the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra, co-artistic directors Rachael Beesley and Nicole van Bruggen guide listeners through Bruch’s compositional methods and explore how he develops motifs in this seldom-heard gem from a composer known for borrowing tunes from other countries.
Suite for Saxophones and Loop Station is a tour de force of real-time composition. Hear award-winning saxophonist Nick Russoniello create a groove-based work by layering and developing musical elements as diverse as beatbox, reggae and minimalism. Russoniello is a polyphonic one-man-band, imaginatively extending the sonic capabilities of the saxophone in live performance.
