About the performance
A celebration of some of Australia’s – and the world’s – finest living composers, Metropolis New Music Festival showcases the MSO’s commitment to contemporary symphonic music.
In 2019, Metropolis – presented in partnership with Melbourne Recital Centre and our Metropolis New Music Festival Education Partner, Monash University – celebrates the work of Dutch master Louis Andriessen, whose 80th birthday will be celebrated around the world.
We will also showcase new works from a host of Australian composers, including MSO’s 2018 Young Composer in Residence, Ade Vincent, whose new piece features the versatile Australian artist Lior.
Subscribe and be the first to know about an array of extra events, featuring MSO’s Artist in Residence, PLEXUS, taking place at Melbourne Recital Centre over the first weekend in May.
“Melbourne Recital Centre looks forward to the 2019 Metropolis New Music Festival, our annual joint venture with the MSO, this year with a focus on Louis Andriessen, and a celebration of vibrant new music from Australia and around the world.” – Marshall McGuire, Director of Programming, Melbourne Recital Centre.
