Parisian composers Lara Morciano and José Miguel Fernández come to Bendigo for this portrait concert of two recent electronic-saturated quintets. Their distinct compositional voices share a flair for visceral immersion and hyper-stimulation: textural density balanced with mercurial levity. As featured composers of 2016 BIFEM, this double portrait concert offers a rich introduction to two superbly imaginative artists working at the height of their powers. Joined by their compatriot and BIFEM alumnus, conductor Maxime Pascal, Diptych draws on the virtuosic power of Argonaut in its fourth and final presentation for 2016.
