THE WRECK OF FORMER BOUNDARIES (2015-16) WP
Aaron CASSIDY

HOW FORESTS THINK (2015-16) WP
Liza LIM

 

ELISION’s second 2016 BIFEM appearance sees the world premieres of major works from two composers with deep association to this ensemble. Liza Lim’s and Aaron Cassidy’s new works for ELISION showcase the impeccable skill and interplay of this ensemble, as well as the keen aesthetic collaboration that composers and musicians develop over time.

This concert introduces BIFEM audiences to the Australian début appearances of Sheng virtuoso Wu Wei, in Lim’s How Forests Think, and Trumpeter Peter Evans, in Cassidy’s The Wreck of Former Boundaries.
