Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Trio Avium
Trio Avium celebrates nature’s great orchestra through bird-inspired music from the 14th century to today.
Australian and European birds of all varieties spring to life through the Trio’s lush combination of Baroque violin, viola da gamba and recorders. Elevated by field recordings of the Australian bushland, you will feel as though you are nestled right there among the treetops.
About this concert
Birds that cluck, crow, chirp and sing take centre stage in Trio Avium’s musical menagerie. Composer and recorder player Ros Bandt’s world premiere pays tribute to the Australian bird named after its beautiful ‘curra-wong’ call. In another of Ros’s works, the cheeky creature famous for its vocal tricks comes to the fore. The flock continues to grow as we fly to Baroque and Medieval Europe, where composers were equally transfixed by winged creatures. From currawongs to nightingales; from lyrebirds to phoenixes; from roosters to eagles; these melodious works illuminate our endless fascination with birds, both as animals and poetic symbols.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
