We have lift off marks the launch of new Melbourne ensemble PLEXUS, which brings together three of Australia’s most vibrant and versatile musicians.
PLEXUS was established in homage to the acclaimed ensemble of the same instrumental combination, the Verdehr Trio, who commissioned numerous important composers of the late 20th century. PLEXUS now continues in their footsteps, commissioning over twenty composers in 2014.
Taking its name from a word evoking interweaving networks of entwined elements, PLEXUS seeks to champion a thriving network of exceptional artists across numerous disciplines.
This concert offers a lavish smorgasbord of melody, style and diverse inspiration, featuring world premieres from five very distinctive Australian composers at various stages in their careers, alongside works by popular composers Aram Khachaturian and Jennifer Higdon, plus the Australian premiere of a film by New York filmmaker Natalya Cohen. CONCERT PROGRAMME AVAILABLE HERE
Join us for this one of a kind epic event, as PLEXUS blasts off on its landmark journey of creative discovery. Everyone is invited for celebratory drinks and supper in the venue after the performance.
