Sir Arnold Bax Music Festival : Australian Discovery Orchestra

Australian premiere performance of Bax’s extraordinary 1917 ballet ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’. The story is about three ornaments; a figure in Dresden porcelain, a clown and a Russian ballerina, in a window sill on a Summer night who suddenly come to life at the stroke of midnight, only to return to being inanimate with the sunrise. This is the first performance anywhere in the world since 1982, with the composer’s manuscript only being rediscovered in 1981.

Undercurrents @TheLivingPavilion

Undercurrents @TheLivingPavilion

Undercurrents is a classical music performance that explores the tension between the built environment and the natural tension between the natural movements of water and nature. The title piece Undercurrents by Thea Rossen is a mass work for Melbourne Conservatorium staff and students created for the Living Pavilion festival featuring the Federation Bells on loan from Museum Victoria. It is inspired by the story of Bouverie Creek, the built environment which now obscures it, and the eels that continue to use this hidden waterway as a migratory route through the campus. The concert further explores these themes through contemporary works by Australian and American composers performed by staff, students and guests of Melbourne Conservation of Music. Performers featured include Carla Blackwood, Joel Brennan, Don Immel, Peter Neville, Thomas D’Ath and special guests Thea Rossen, Jesse Deane and Zela Papageorgiou.
