As one of Australia’s most exciting young chamber ensembles, Arcadia Winds is quickly becoming a fixture in the national classical music scene.
Known for their energetic, joyful and spontaneous performances, their advocacy and love of wind instruments and in particular their strong commitment to supporting Australian music.
We are all by nature fascinated by mortality—composers are no exception. In their ruminations on life and death, many have turned to the very thing that keeps us alive: our breath. Join Arcadia Winds as they breathe life into Janáček’s fond reflections on his youth and Ravel’s poignant tribute to his friends killed in war. Breathe with them as they sing Vask’s heartbreaking homage to a colleague taken too soon, and as Sciarrino turns the clarinet into a living, breathing creature of its own.
