Event details

A fearless pioneer in chamber music, Syzygy Ensemble combines virtuoso talent with a bold commitment to contemporary works.

Since 2009, the Ensemble’s eye-opening performances have brought living composers’ works to vivid life, sparking visceral connections between 21st-century artists and audiences.

About this concert

In the final chapter of an exciting series, Syzygy Ensemble continues to explore the fragmented world of music in the post-postmodern age. Encounter fascinating mushrooms that grow from scorched earth in Naima Fine’s Stonemaker and meditative soundscapes that pulse with latent energy in Carolyn Schofield’s Face-up. In Lachlan Skipworth’s Flute Sonata and Jennifer Higdon’s Zaka, explore two kinds of virtuoso music-making from a brilliant Australian composer and one of the most respected female voices in contemporary classical music. Syzygy is also delighted to perform Rosalind Page’s new work If I Close My Eyes.
