Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music proudly presents the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra (ASO) in their first ever Victorian appearance. The ASO’s 40-player BIFEM residency will feature two stunning lyrical programmes at the Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo. The opening night features a remarkable string ensemble work by the Taiwanese-Australian composer Annie Hui-Hsin Hsieh, a world premiere from BIFEM Founder David Chisholm, and the Australian premiere of the late British composer Johnathan Harvey’s exquisite Tranquil Abiding. The second programme features two rarely performed North American 20th century iconic pieces: Morton Feldman’s intimate portrait For Samuel Beckett and Claude Vivier’s haunting Lonely Child, sung by Australian soprano Jane Sheldon in her BIFEM return. USA conductor Eric Dudley, also returns to BIFEM for his first collaboration with ASO. These two concerts will showcase the skill and power of Australia’s most adventurous orchestra, right at home in Australia’s most respected and exciting new music festival.
