Music and architecture come together in a series of talks and concerts hosted in, and inspired by, the singular buildings of Australia’s most famous modernist architect, Harry Seidler.

Recorder virtuoso Genevieve Lacey is joined by cellist Daniel Yeadon and harpsichordist Neal Peres da Costa for a program that pays tribute to Seidler’s love for the structural geometry of baroque architecture, with 18th century Gothic classics set alongside modern Australian works for old instruments.

The 18th century is represented with work by baroque masters Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi, while Night Song pays tribute to Seidler’s contemporary Peter Sculthorpe, a composer who was also defiantly modern during an era that didn’t always welcome artistic innovation.

The program is rounded out by James Ledger’s New Tricks for Old Dogs, a work commissioned in 2008 by Lacey, Yeadon and Peres da Costa with funds from the Australia Council. Ledger’s wry humour shines through: the score comes with a note that period costume is recommended, but not compulsory!
