Lunchbreak Concert 3: The Power of Breath

Wind & Percussion Music from Jewish Composers

Free admission

Directed by Roger Benedict, the SSO Fellows present a concert of wind music composed in Australia by German-Jewish composers. Walter Wurzburger’s Wind Quintet was written in 1946, while the composer was completing his music degree at the Melba Conservatorium of Music. Ten years later, the composer George Dreyfus completed his first major composition while a student at the Imperial Academy in Vienna. Werner Baer’s Three Short Sketches were composed during his time as NSW supervisor of music at the ABC. Dan Biederman’s composition is based on conversations and friendships with Dr Solomon Bard, while Solomon Frank’s new work draws on inspiration from his own family history.
