Australia Ensemble UNSW 2023 Subscription Concert: Ecstatic Science
Some music delights in pattern for its own sake. Bach glimpsed limitless possibilities in the one theme that inspired his Musical Offering, while Missy Mazzoli and Nigel Westlake create fascinating and vibrant works out of ornament and elaboration. Chemist and composer Alexander Borodin drew his patterns from the songs and dances of his native Russia.
