Ensemble Q & friends take us around the world in 80 minutes. From a game of bowls in Vienna to the aching sentimentality of French love song, they pause for a moment to capture memories of an old Australian house brought to life by young Australian composer Jack Lundie-Jenkins, then break hearts under the affect of Hungarian melancholy. The journey culminates with mezzo soprano Lotte Betts-Dean sharing Berio’s fiery and delightfully lyrical folksong journey, depicting the USA, Armenia, France, Sicily, Italy, Sardinia, and Azerbaijan.
