Details

With a passion for early and modern repertoire and an ability to seamlessly cross the genres and performance styles of folk and art-music, Evergreen Ensemble is an up-and-coming ensemble with a unique musical language.

Their line-up consists of Baroque violin and oboe mixed with bassoon, small pipes and cello. Performing works of 18th-century Scotland, each piece is inspired by a different plant, flower or vegetable. Music and gardening find common ground with fascinating horticultural commentary on the leafy titles given by Simon Rickard.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Evergreen Ensemble
