Event Introduction

Zagros Ensemble, which specialises in interpretations of chamber music pieces, performs music by the multiple-award winning Australian composer Liza Lim, directed by Petri Komulainen. The concert will feature her work Garden of Earthly Desires for a large ensemble. The opening number will be Plekto for flute, clarinet, percussion, piano and cello by one of the most important musical influences of the 20th century, the Greek composer/architect/engineer Iannis Xenakis. Matthew Whittal’s Devil’s Gate has been inspired by the composer’s three day hike in Lapland’s incredible scenery.
