Within and Without brings together five unique Australian voices: composers Moya Henderson, Ella Macens, Peggy Polias and Paul Dean and soprano Lorina Gore, CSO Artist in Focus for 2021.

The opening work is Henderson’s Kudikynah Cave, where the composer forged a connection that would drive her passion for the longest continuing music practice in the world.

The concert features world premieres from Ella Macens and Peggy Polias: Macens’ works vibrantly blend elements of popular and classical music with influences from her Latvian heritage, while Polias entices listeners to journey together through time and nature.

The program closes with Dean’s Amid a crowd of stars. Originally written in 2004, the composer has reimagined the work for this Australian Series and found new resonance and depth.
