Parables of Lucid Dreaming

Parables of Lucid Dreaming


Experience the the brilliance of ELISION

The physical virtuosity of breath, lungs and lips are on display with new repertoire from composers in the UK to the USA, bringing the brilliance of ELISION brass and wind to the fore.

The musicianship of Tristram Williams, trumpet, Richard Haynes, clarinet (on a welcome return visit to Australia) and Benjamin Marks, trombone, is spectacular and in full flight.

ELISION is Australia’s premiere new music ensemble, comprised of virtuoso musicians living in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Cologne, Bern and Singapore.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and ELISION
