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.
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.
