Free Music in the Salon

Melbourne Recital Centre opens the doors of its intimate Salon on one day each month from March to December for FREE open rehearsals featuring the very best of Melbourne’s chamber musicians. 

On each selected day the artists will use this opportunity to rehearse new works, new programs and try out new ideas for you, in this informal open and free event.

Just turn up any time during the session – the doors will always be open, so you can come and go as you please. And you might get to hear your favorite artists, or someone completely new to you – you’ll only discover if you come along!

Ossicle Duo will take this opportunity to prepare repertoire for ‘The Art of Noises’ presented at the same venue on May 16th at 6pm

The Art of Noises

Contemporary music and theatre mingle in an exploration of the work of German-Argentine composer Mauricio Kagel. An aging trombonist carries out strange assembly rituals. An eccentric percussionist conducts sonic experiments with the help of an occasionally unruly assistant. And San Diego composer Michelle Lou’s ‘untitled three-part construction’ offers a distinctive noise palette of vibrating mobile phones, spanners and mechanical switches.

Tickets are now available at the Melbourne Recital Centre website.

Even the Blood Must Sleep

Hints of jazz, progressive rock and metal express the groove in contemporary art music. Harmony vies with discord, brutality with beauty, and normality with a chorus of ACME siren whistles. Saxophonist Ali Fyffe and pianist Alex Waite transform Ossicle Duo into a vibrant musical collective capable of unique and dazzling sound.

In a Japanese Garden

For the first concert in its inaugural 2018 Salon series, Ossicle Duo presents a program of works inspired by the Japanese garden, or ‘Teien’.

Featuring cultivated forms, liquid transitions and meditative calm, this program explores the aesthetics of Japanese outdoor spaces, in works by Dai Fujikura, Kaija Saariaho and John Cage.
