A celebration of some of Australia’s – and the world’s – finest living composers, Metropolis New Music Festival showcases the MSO’s commitment to contemporary symphonic music.
In 2019, Metropolis – presented in partnership with Melbourne Recital Centre and our Metropolis New Music Festival Education Partner, Monash University – celebrates the work of Dutch master Louis Andriessen, whose 80th birthday will be celebrated around the world.
Composer Kate Moore studied under Andriessen, and the MSO will perform a world premiere of her Percussion Concerto, written especially for acclaimed percussionist Claire Edwardes.
