Canberra International Music Festival
Held from 28 April - 8 May 2016 CIMF is a growing festival that features some of Australia's finest musicians, and international guest musicians with specific performance fields. In 2015 the focus was on Beethoven's Piano Sonatas (yes, all of them!), the music of Philip Glass, the Russian Masters, and Hildegard von Bingen. This year, the 2016 Festival has a Spanish/Latino flair, and we are joined by many artists with experience in this vein.
Song Company will return to the festival in the following performances:
- Fandango - 30 April - Forma Antiqva, El Fuego, Fandango
- Petite Messe Solennelle - 1 May - Rossini's famous 'little solemn mass' which Napoleon III said was neither little, nor solemn.
- Braddon's Bread and Games - 4 May - Brophy, Monteverdi, Manuel de Falla
- El Camino - 5 May - Cantigas de Santa Maria, Rautavaara, new work by Gerald Brophy
