Omega Ensemble returns to The Joan 

The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre is thrilled to present Re:Classical by Omega Ensemble.

Omega Ensemble has been hailed as ‘the best chamber music outfit in town’ by the Sydney Morning Herald and ‘one of Australia’s most exciting and forward-thinking ensembles’ by Limelight.

Acclaimed composer and innovator Max Richter’s chart-topping global sensation, Four Seasons Recomposed, leads this performance of groundbreaking classical music. One of the highest-selling classical music recordings of all time, Richter expertly retouches, reworks, and reimagines Vivaldi’s Four Seasons masterwork, resulting in a transformative experience that sounds entirely new, and yet satisfyingly full of familiar delights.

This incredible performance also includes a world premiere by American composer Jessie Montgomery, whose infectious music celebrates dance and movement, and Elena Kats-Chernin’s Clarinet Concerto Ornamental Air reimagined in a bold new version for Omega Ensemble and clarinetist David Rowden, packed with virtuosic arpeggios and relentless rhythmic energy.

At the heart of the Ensemble’s success is the talent it supports, including some of Australia’s most accomplished classical musicians and artistic collaborators. With a commitment to preserve and present foundational repertoire, the Ensemble also proudly stands at the forefront of new musical expression, with frequent commissions and premieres from leading Australian and international composers.

Re:Classical – Omega Ensemble is on at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on Saturday 20 April at 7:30pm. Tickets: Standard $45, Concession $40. 35 & Under $30. A booking fee of $5 applies.
