Visions Collide – Homage to French Classical Music – Achingly Beautiful, Sometimes Frivolous

Community Events

Six  talented and vibrant young musicians chat to the Sunday Magazine Arts team about their current classical recital programmes.

Collide has curated a programme of French mid 19th century music to honour the beginnings of the saxophone, and to share the delights of the French style. These three award-winning artists, who are also close friends, want to share the colour and beauty of sound with people everywhere.

From the beginning, Collide (Yelian He, cello; Joseph Lallo, saxohpone; Yasmin Rowe, piano) has been about shattering imaginations on what was traditionally thought possible.  Arranging well-loved works for other instruments,  showcasing the distance classical saxophone has come since the 1800s, encouraging living composers to write for ensembles outside of the norm. Their recital program begins 27 March at Forty Five Downstairs, 45 Flinders Lane in downtown Melbourne.

Duo Eclettico Saxophonist Justin Kenealy and pianist Coady Green saxophonist also reveal details of their upcoming performance in May at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
