The venue, the New Hall at Sydney Grammer School is stunning! It is cut into Sydney’s rock base and the contrast of sharp clean geometric shapes against the intentionally raw rock back wall is breathtaking. We joined the students for this lunchtime preview and despite the empty seats the music filled every corner of this giant and majestic hall.
Lovingly programmed by the two ensembles with all the music written in the past decade, the concert celebrates a shared passion for new music and the very personal relationships between the ensembles and the composers who create it. Program features the Australian premiere of Gordon Kerry’s Goodison Quartet #1, the World premiere of Lyle Chan’s Mark and Adrian are her sons, Graham Hair’s Octet with Voices and recently recorded works by Elena Kats-Chernin.
