$25 – $62

A ‘WIDE AWAKE’ OPENING CONCERT SHOWCASING EACH INSTRUMENTAL FAMILY AT ANAM – STRINGS, WOODWIND, BRASS, PERCUSSION AND KEYBOARD.

  • Scintillating arrangements of repertoire classics by Beethoven, Bizet and Stravinsky run shoulder to shoulder with amazing new discoveries
  • Kecak is a modern classic, in which the percussionists vocalise while playing dazzlingly complex rhythmic patterns
  • Lachenmann is one of the most distinctive, inventive and admired composers of our time, and he stunned the world with his musical joke Marche fatale in 2018. For anyone looking for meaning in this work, Lachenmann responds: “My ‘Marche’ says ‘the situation is hopeless, but not serious.’”
