Dreams and Visions will collide in Southern Cross Soloists’ (SXS) concert of musical portraits taken from the innermost imaginations of some of the greatest composers.

A kaleidoscope of colours and imagery will be expressed in works that include Vivaldi’s Spanish-flavoured oboe concerto, Bruch’s exotic Jewish-inspired Kol NidreiSaint-Saëns horn masterpiece, Morceau de Concert; Debussy’s sensuous dreamlike vision of nymphs through a faun’s eyes, and the Greece of Ravel’s dreams in his suite from Daphnis and Chloé.

A major highlight will be a new work by Hollywood-based Queensland composer Joe Twist for SXS and didgeridoo, that takes inspiration from the atmospheric paintings of the ancient Gondwana Rainforest of Springbrook National Park by acclaimed artist William Robinson.
