Press, Play: sweet is the torment

  • Melbourne Recital Centre 31 Sturt Street Southbank, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)

Taking the sensuous splendor of Monteverdi’s madrigals as a point of departure, Sweet is the Torment draws on a range of historical influences to create a musical journey in time from the sumptuous beauty of High Renaissance, via the liturgical purity of Baroque, to the unpredictable whimsy of Modernity. Press, Play invite you on an impassioned musical and visual adventure as words, sounds, and images collide and coalesce in a tapestry of seamless beauty and timelessness.
