Broken Consorts

Surprise meetings, unexpected vistas, unusual sounds.

Ensemble Offspring & Ironwood bring their unique sounds together in this program of mix n match, old meets new.

The seventeenth century consort of viols could be ‘broken’ and played by any instrument at hand. Hear what happens when Ensemble Offspring & Ironwood use this idea in a delicious mix of old and new sounds, with works by Australian composers Mary Finsterer, Damien Ricketson, with 17th century English works by William Lawes, Matthew Locke and a world premiere by Australian Felicity Wilcox.
