Ensemble Offspring

Broken Consorts

February 20, 2015 @ 7:30 pm

Ensemble Offspring, Sydney’s champions of the new, and Ironwood, trailblazers for the early, invite you to a breathtaking world of sound. Like floating through a forest, Broken Consorts will envelop you in a cocoon of bristlings, warblings and ethereal reverberations—a musical experience that exists across and beyond time.

Hear what happens as Ensemble Offspring and Ironwood mix and match old and new sounds, with works by Australian composers Mary Finsterer, Damien Ricketson, 17th century English works by William Lawes and Matthew Locke, and a world premiere by Australian Felicity Wilcox.

“This was an exceptionally beautiful performance by Ensemble Offspring and Ironwood Chamber Ensemble. A collaboration of like-minded musicians offering yet another new insight to modern musical performance for today.”
