Australian Brandenburg Orchestra goes digital for brand-new production Ayres & Graces
Concerts are few and far between at the moment – and harder than ever to secure tickets for. That’s why Australian Brandenburg Orchestra’s special digital premiere of Ayres & Graces has arrived at just the right time, ready to serve up an evening of bewitching sounds straight to your living room on Sunday November 1. Featuring everything from heavenly trio sonatas to intimate chamber music, this is one musical journey you don’t want to miss out on.
Filmed at City Recital Hall in Sydney and streamed to your home for the first time ever, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra’s Ayres & Graces blends colourful imagery curated by Australian designer Silvana Azzi Heras with a program of period chamber music from the English and French Baroque that will delight audiences. The concert will feature a spectacular collection of musical talent playing period instruments, with program curator Melissa Farrow on the Baroque flute and recorder, Rafael Font playing the Baroque violin, Marianne Yeomans on the Baroque viola, Anton Baba playing the Baroque cello and viola da gamba, Tommie Andersson on theorbo and Baroque guitar, and Mikaela Oberg on the Baroque flute and recorder.
Forget delayed flights and long airport waits, as Australian Brandenburg Orchestra will take you around the world and through time in this compelling performance. First you will be transported to late 17th-century France with a rendition of music from the first opéra-ballet, L’Europe galante, followed by a performance of ‘Entrée des Zéphyrs’. Later, you will time travel to 18th-century London, when the orchestra plays a medley of tunes including ‘Strawberries and Cream’ from The English Dancing Master (1657).
