Festival Sound Shell Day 2
Sunday 1 April | 9:30am–3pm | Sound Shell
Another ravishing day of music and beauty. Start the day gently with sublime early vocal music performed by Australia’s only full-time professional choir, The Song Company. As Sunday unfolds, the majestic sounds of brass will lead us into the classical sound world of Haydn. A new work by Damien Barbeler, inspired by Murray Bail’s award winning book ‘Eucalyptus’ will be premiered – a wonderful example of music and nature coming together at the Four Winds Festival. The music of Arvo Pärt will also bring an expansive, yet calm order to our Sunday festival experience. Expect an energised close to the day with a work inspired by Picasso’s master work, ‘The Three Dancers’ which will bring our festival artists together for their final collaborative performance.

Vocal music by William Byrd
Brass music by Rameau
Barbeler | Eucalyptus (world premiere, Festival commission)
Haydn | Chamber Symphony 104 in D major
