Ensemble Volante presents Regermination: a collection of lush new contemporary works showcasing a joyful, cathartic dedication to the boundless landscapes and iconic birdlife of Australia. Consisting of six glorious art songs and a solo piano piece, these works celebrate a deep connection to nature and the restorative, consoling effect it has on the troubled mind. Conceived in isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, the music seeks to find a remedy for loneliness through mindful observation of the natural world around us.
To be premiered live in concert with four shows across Victoria, including a special live streamed performance.
Album to be released in June 2022 through MOVE Records, Melbourne.
Ensemble Volante would like to acknowledge the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation and the clans of the Gunaikurnai nation as the traditional custodians of the lands that have inspired this music. We pay our respects to the Elders of these communities, past, present and emerging, and recognise that the people of this land have been making music for thousands of years and will continue to make music for many years to follow.
