ANAM musicians: Schubert, Laing, Boleyn, Radice, Debussy & Lang
6 August @ 14:00 - 15:00Free
ANAM Musicians return to NGV Australia for a performance curated and inspired by Ron Mueck’s Mass.
Two of Schubert’s most famous and most haunting lieder bookend the program, which takes us through Australian composer Matt Laing’s meditation on nihilism, followed by famous Tudor Anne Boleyn’s morbid final lament as she awaited her execution. The macabre imagery of Australian composer Marlene Radice is followed by Debussy’s deeply beautiful Syrinx, and excerpts from David Lang’s groundbreaking opera Death Speaks, a reimagining of Schubert’s many musical personifications of Death.
