Message From the Artistic Director

After a successful premiere iteration last year, I’m totally thrilled that the Brisbane Music Festival is returning in 2019. An ambitious ten-performance program has been constructed around the theme of this year’s festival, ‘Journeys’.

The festival this year features some of Australia’s most vibrant arts practitioners. Highlights include Sara Macliver in recital and the premiere season of bloodpaths, a collaborative project featuring new music and contemporary dance.

The BMF is interested in narratives. It is interested in building bridges between performers, composers and listeners. This is a festival engaged with a cultural dialogue that celebrates the masterworks of the past, while also engaging in contemporary content with multiple newly commissioned works receiving their premiere performances.

An oft-praised facet of chamber music and solo instrumental performance is its potential for heightened intimacy between artist and audience. Seeking to explore this connectivity, the BMF takes place in multiple unique settings throughout the city of Brisbane. Rather than making music in regularly attended concert halls, the BMF is interested in ‘sounding’ Brisbane’s undiscovered acoustic treasures with 2019 performances taking place in venues at Kangaroo Point, Fortitude Valley, Milton, Bowen Hills and New Farm.

I hope that you can join us for the journeys that comprise what promises to be a scintillating festival!
