Spring is in the air, which means it’s nearly time for BIFEM 2018! I can barely believe we’re already up to our sixth edition, and it’s going to be a doozy. This year I have the pleasure of reuniting with dream quartet compadres, Judith Hamann, Erkki Veltheim and Graeme Jennings for our yearly Argonaut Quartet Concert, this time with works by Michelle Lou, Annie Hsieh, Sami Klemola and Dobromiła Jaskot. I will also be making an appearance in recital with Natasha Anderson playing the incredible new piece she has written for me, The Target Has Disappeared, for baroque violin, voice and electronics, with film by Sabina Maselli.
Check out our website here and be sure to book as things will sell out.
The Target Has Disappeared was commissioned with support from the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
