The Hills of Canberra Are Alive….With the Sound of Music

Music lovers from around the world, the time is nigh! The annual Canberra International Music Festival is about to begin and it is bringing with it some of the best cultural experiences of sound from all across the green and blue planet.

Starting on May 9 and wrapping up May 18, the program will feature the music of Brahms using period instrument specialist Elizabeth Wallfisch and the Wallfisch Band. This will also be the event that will show the first Australian historically informed performance of the Brahms’ Requiem, as well as some of his greatest chamber works.

Other highlights include the Mozart Requiem, Bach Magnificat and Boccherini’s Stabat Mater on period instruments. Guests will have the chance to experience the Australian premiere of the immense Music of the Spheres by Danish composer Rued Langgaard, the most significant work written during the 1st World War.

This will be a brilliant opportunity to experience a rich and vibrant program of classical and contemporary music presented in many of Canberra’s unique architectural spaces during the Canberra International Music Festival’s 20th anniversary.

The Canberra International Music Festival will run from May 9 to May 18.
