Britten, Saariaho and Gyger

9-15 June
Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne & digital broadcast

Our second program Songs of Rosa Mystica, led by Guest Music Director Jack Symonds, is a program of contemporary masterworks for unaccompanied voices. From Elliott Gyger's mighty 1994 work "Ficta", through excepts of Benjamin Britten's "A.M.D.G". and works by Tippett, Saariaho and Symonds himself, The Song Company will challenge your perception of what the human voice is capable.
