Incredible Floridas

June 23 @ 7:30pm June 24 @ 7:30pm

A highlight of Ensemble Offspring’s 2023 season, Incredible Floridas is chamber music at its most intense, visceral and radical. Composed over 50 years ago by the great Australian modernist Richard Meale, Incredible Floridas pays tribute to surrealist poet Arthur Rimbaud; a slow and delicate descent into the human psyche.

In the rustic surrounds of Carriageworks, this 30-minute masterpiece is flanked by world premieres from French composer Augustin Braud and Australians Jack Symonds and Josephine Macken – all of whom take inspiration from Meale’s brooding and complex musical language. This is a program which explores the depths of human emotion through carefully nuanced sonic colours. Don’t miss it!
