Ariadne's Crown

Centered around the mystical story of Ariadne, this concert of new and experimental chamber music brings together various elements to form an evening of diverse and varied sounds, ranging from a new take on Beethoven’s "Spring" Violin Sonata, a slice of baroque choral music, through to newly commissioned works from two of Melbourne’s women composers; Johanna Selleck’s Aia and May Lyon’s CreAture, paired with the grand old lady of Australian Music – Peggy Glanville-Hicks' Harp Sonata, which all explore and shape our knowledge and experience of famous myths and traditions.
