As Musica Viva’s inaugural FutureMakers, the country’s finest young wind ensemble is already beginning to make its mark on Australia’s musical landscape, bringing energetic, spontaneous and joyful performances to audiences across the country. In this program, high spirits abound, from Ligeti’s cheerful, quirky 1960s soundworld to Françaix’s amusing characterisations of each instrument – like a witty conversation in French! And where Zemlinsky turned, in perhaps his last work, to the glowing ‘Harmonie’ style of his youth, young Australian composer Elizabeth Younan offers a brilliant glimpse of the wind music of the future.
