A celebration of Louis Andriessen and Australian new music

A celebration of some of Australia’s – and the world’s – finest living composers, Metropolis New Music Festival showcases the MSO’s commitment to contemporary symphonic music.

In 2019, Metropolis – co-presented by MSO, Melbourne Recital Centre and Metropolis New Music Festival Education Partner, Monash University – celebrates the work of Dutch master Louis Andriessen, whose 80th birthday will be celebrated around the world.

We will also showcase new works from a host of Australian composers, including MSO’s 2018 Young Composer in Residence, Ade Vincent, whose new piece features the versatile Australian artist Lior.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Melbourne Symphony Orchestra


Join us for a post-concert talk in the Ground Floor Foyer from 9pm.
