Modern Masterworks at a virtuosic BPM.

Described as “as difficult as [the] original chamber symphony, if not more so” (LA Times), John Adams’ complex and thrilling Son of Chamber Symphony leads this performance of works of virtuosity and colour. Accompanied by Copland’s Sextet, arranged by the composer after his Second Symphony received so few performances due to it’s complexity, this performance also includes the Australian premiere of Nico Muhly’s driving Motion, as well as Australian composer Chrisopher Gordon’s Freefall Symphony, commissioned by the Ensemble in 2007 and ‘re-premiered’ on the main stage for the first time. Together these works form one of the most demanding programs ever undertaken by Omega Ensemble.
