Australia Ensemble: Postcards

14 October 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm AEDT

Tickets: $50/$38/$30/$15

Around the world in 80 minutes! The Ensemble will be sending postcards from Bali in Peter Sculthorpe’s wonderful work for wind quintet and percussion Tabuh Tabuhan, as well as the streetscapes of Argentina in Miguel del Aguila’s rhythmically-charged Salon Buenos Aires via more tranquil journeys with subtle Jewish inflections in Ernst Bloch’s Paysages.

The season ends on a festive note with Tchaikovsky’s glorious string sextet Souvenir de Florence.
