Asia is reshaping the modern world. Yet its rich artistic heritage and vibrant New Music scene is largely unknown in Australia. Forest Collective’s Ali Fyffe has curated a stunning program that brings into focus some of the region’s most powerful compositional voices, from Myanmar to Japan, China to Iran.
Navigating Eastern and Western traditions, new technologies and challenges including state censorship, these exciting composers have found unique and original musical voices. With a program including Ravi Shankar’s raga imbued Sonata for Harp and Cello, Takemitsu’s transcendental quintet Rain Spell and Luo Zhongrong’s post-Cultural Revolution pentatonic serialism, Asia in Focus will open your ears to a region that is changing the world.
