Jasper Ly & Peter Dumsday – Folklore


Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Jasper Ly


Celebrating the unity between the old and new.

About the artists

Jasper Ly and Peter Dumsday are both active artists in the Australian contemporary music scene. Their performances are inspired by their diverse musical background with influences ranging from classical, jazz, electronic dance music, and the avant-garde.

About the concert

Their performance in Primrose Potter Salon will feature a selection of 20th century and contemporary works written for oboe, piano and electronics. The program explores the fusion between modernism and folklore, whilst highlighting the elusive, passionate and wild personalities of both instruments.

At a time where the focus is constantly on ‘what’s next?’, this performance will connect audiences with the generations, cultures and stories that have come before, reminding us that ultimately the past is what shapes the future.
