As Australia’s only electric viola da gamba ensemble, Elysian Fields is on a “singular path” to creating a new sound world and new repertoire for the modern version of one of the western world’s most ancient instruments. In 2019 the Sydney Morning Herald music critic wrote of Elysian Fields “this time-bending, mind-bending project makes music that sounds modern and hundreds of years old simultaneously”. Our “Prelude in Tea” performance at The Independent continues that tradition with the world premiere of “I dreamed I moved among the Elysian Fields” by highly regarded composer, Gordon Kerry, the first classical composer to write for the group. Also featured are new commissions by group members Matt Keegan and Matt McMahon.
