Two of Australia's most adventurous classical musicians, Simone Slattery (violin) and Anthony Albrecht (cello), are touring NSW in May 2019. They will perform their beautiful multimedia show, Where Song Began, a musical celebration of Australia’s birds and how they shaped the world. Based on leading ornithologist Tim Low's bestselling book, this performance tells the story of the evolution of song, featuring music spanning 300 years, stunning visual projections and an immersive soundscape. The experience has been described as like being sung to by the country. Accessible for all ages, the audience is encouraged to contemplate the origin of song and the importance of Australia's rich and colourful bird history. The program includes music spanning 300 years, from Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and J.S. Bach to Arvo Pärt and new Australian works, enhanced by a film of evocative visual projections, and an immersive soundscape. About the performers: Simone Slattery was recently awarded a PhD in Music Performance from the University of Adelaide and performs regularly with Australia’s finest ensembles. Anthony Albrecht is an Australian graduate of The Juilliard School’s Historical Performance program and is now based in London. Performance length: 60 minutes without interval, including a Q and A.
