Russia’s Finest New Music Performers Are Coming To Perth

Tura New Music proudly presents Russia’s premier new music performers, Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble, at the Subiaco Arts Centre on 2 May 2017.

The Perth concert features Ivan Bushuev (flute), Oleg Tantsov (clarinet), Mikhail Dubov (piano) and Vladisal Pesin (violin).

The ensemble will showcase works by renowned contemporary Russian composers Edison Denisov, Alexei Sioumak, Dmitri Kourliandski and Sergei Newski, plus works by Tristan Murail, and Beat Furrer.

“This is a once in lifetime opportunity to hear the works of contemporary Russian composers performed in extreme virtuosity by those best placed to interpret the works – their fellow countrymen,” said Tura Artistic Director Tos Mahoney.

“The Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble are world leaders in new music performance and have travelled all over the world, but this marks the first time they have visited Australia for a national tour.”

The performance premieres a new work by Australian composer Michael Smetanin, commissioned by MCME with support from the Ministry of Culture of Russian Federation.

This is the first concert in Tura’s 2017 Scale Variable New Chamber Music Series.
