In a recital of tranquil dreams, pastoral scenes and fragmented recollections, the sumptuous combination of flute, viola and harp unites three exciting, young soloists – Emily Granger, Jonathan Henderson and James Wannan.
Imbued with flickers of light, Debussy’s second sonata is told in a fragrant language of ambiguity and fleeting suggestion. In a masterful display of timbral manipulation, Japanese composer Tōru Takemitsu pays homage to Debussy with his own trio And then I knew 'twas Wind – a musical depiction of the human subconscious played out across interconnected musical episodes.
Featuring a special commissioned work by Sydney-based composer Tristan Coelho, the intriguing addition of live electronics expands the scope of this unique instrumental combination, awakening us from a fantasy dreamscape into a digital reality.
