Adelaide Festival: Sex and Madness

4 March @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

Oz composers Richard Meale, Ross Edwards and Elena Kats-Chernin all started under Schoenberg’s spell before they found themselves gasping for their own air. Meale’s Lumen, which achieves complexity over a single chord, is an homage to a very different piece written at the same time as Pierrot (Scriabin’s Vers la flamme), the potency of which lay dormant until post-modernism kicked in. Edwards’s saxophone quintet, rich with the sounds of the Australian bush, and Kats-Chenin’s radiant piano quintet are future classics from the last five years.
