What are the sonic possibilities when the oldest wind instrument in the world – the didgeridoo – teams up with instruments that found their final form only two centuries ago? And who better to explore them than distinguished artist and composer William Barton?
Ensemble Q is a group powered by the passion and fizz of curiosity and underpinned by the virtuosic integrity of some of Australia’s finest musicians. It might just be the perfect playground for making music. Their ear-catching program includes works by William Barton and Paul Dean alongside hand-picked masterpieces by Brahms and Ligeti, which promise to wrap audiences in a multi-faceted kaleidoscope of sound.
PROGRAM:
WILLIAM BARTON New work (2024)*
BRAHMS Cello Sonata No. 1 in E minor, Op. 38 (arr. Breuer)
LIGETI Six Bagatelles
PAUL DEAN Concerto for Cello and Wind Quintet
*World premiere performances. Commissioned by Musica Viva Australia with the support of the Hon Anthe Philippides SC.
Alison Mitchell, Huw Jones, David Mitchell, and Phoebe Russell appear courtesy of Queensland, Symphony Orchestra .
"The possibilities are extraordinary. [William Barton] is a great man. He radiates. "
— Sir Simon Rattle
"[Ensemble Q was] quite possibly the best performance I’ve seen all year and an astonishing feat of music-making...Frankly, this was a jaw-dropping performance."
— Limelight
