The concerts will feature contemporary works by Australian, Vietnamese and Italian composers, performed by the Monash Flute Ensemble lead by flute-master Peter Sheridan. Flutes of all sizes – John’s piece, Alighting#1, is for standard flutes, plus alto, bass, contrabass, and sub-contrabass flutes. Yes, these are all very real instruments, some of them very large, and they all sound wonderful!
