This concert is presented as part of the annual Metropolis New Music Festival, Australia's most important festival of contemporary music, at the Melbourne Recital Centre. In 2014, the festival explores the mystery and majesty of the cosmos and its creation.
Accordingly, PLEXUS presents the world premieres of five works by major Australian composers, bonded together through the inspiration of the world's diverse mythologies. Their music spawns variously from the pantheon of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the enigmatic world of the Celts, and the mystical culture of this country’s first peoples.
PLEXUS is joined in the Mills and the Kerry by acclaimed Australian tenor, Christopher Saunders.
Joins us for a journey through the contemporary pantheon of Australian composers, as PLEXUS recaptures a time when the world was full of mystery.
