Event Details

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 envelops the audience 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.    

Performers: Ensemble Offspring and Ironwood: Zubin Kanga (piano) Jason Noble (clarinet) Lamorna Nightingale (flute) Claire Edwardes (percussion) Nicole Forsyth (viola) Julia Fredersdorff (violin) Veronique Serret (violin) Daniel Yeadon (cello)

Featured non-Australian music: William Lawes – Royal Consort, Matthew Locke – Broken Consorts
