Curiosity, fearlessness and versatility carry Australian flutist Lina Andonovska’s artistry around the globe, and she returns to home soil with a performance that invokes a staggering range of musical contrasts and demands on the performer.
A name that you’ll discover on both the pages of Rolling Stone and the Australian Chamber Orchestra roster, Lina has not only cultivated creative partnerships with leading composers including Louis Andriessen, Thomas Adès and Bryce Dessner (The National), but also deep community ties from Timor Leste to Tokyo’s incubator Wonder Site.
With a program featuring Brett Dean’s Demons (2004), John Fonville’s Music for Sarah (1995), Jennifer Higdon’s Rapid Fire (1992) and Donnacha Dennehy’s Bridget (2019), audiences will be quick to see why Andonovska is a rare breed in the flute world.
Here we reveal a solo voice surveying the peaks of contemporary composition, culminating with the world premiere of Donnacha Dennehy’s Bridget: a work commissioned by Andonovska based on repetition, accumulation and manipulation of layering inherent in the works of British visual artist Bridget Riley.
