Jonathan Henderson and Joel Woods join forces in an up-close recital of pan-ethnic chamber music for flute and guitar performed in Toowoomba’s industrial Lasso Gallery.
The entire wealth and colourful variety of village life resounds in Béla Bartók's Six Romanian Folk Dances, a collection of melodies from the Máramaros county of Romania. His electric dance suite offers an array of original folk music, rich in harmonic colouring and undulating rhythms.
Unfolding across unctuous, florid variations, Marin Marais’ Les Folies D'espagne sits back-to-back with a unique 20th-century work by Brazil’s most creative art music composer Heitor Villa-Lobos; Distribuição de flores.
In a retrospective of his previous styles, Astor Piazzolla poignantly highlights the historical evolution of the Argentinian tango in his beloved Histoire du tango–an endless supply of rhythmic vitality that is fresh, vibrant and emotionally charged.
