The Voyage of Musical Discovery series was established and designed by the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra and its founding artistic director and world-renowned educator, the late Richard Gill AO.
The second Voyage charts the links between music, culture and narrative.
From a European epicentre of arts and science, the concert begins by exploring the works and stories of two Viennese Romantic composers. That one is almost entirely unknown today and the other famous and admired suggests as much about culture and politics as it does about musical skill.
The second half finds common ground between two instruments of different cultures – the didgeridoo and violin. Together William Barton and Véronique Serret trace improvised musical pathways, and hold a mirror up to the multilayered stories of contemporary culture and place.
