Join Dual Aura’s Monica Schmidt Andersen (Recorder) and Ben Dollman (violin) as they take you on an exciting journey of discovery through the life force of world music all within the architecture of the High Court of Australia.
Starting with the Celtic tradition including variations by the 19th century violinist Scott Skinner, you will travel on to Denmark with music originating from Sønderho then to North Germany with Telemann providing a counterpoint to the folk traditions, and further to the fascinating world of Breton folk music originating from Brittany. The concert concludes with one of Australia’s finest composers, Ross Edwards, highlighting his Ecstatic Dance inspired by both traditional music of the world and by the natural environment of Australia.
Monica Schmidt Andersen is one of Denmark’s finest emerging musicians and is building a creative career in performance on recorders in diverse forms. Ben Dollman is one of Australia’s leading performers on baroque violin, having held the position of Principal Violin in the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra for over ten years.
