They are regular guests at the world’s most prestigious festivals, including Salzburg, Festwochen Wien, Lincoln Center, Festival d’Automne Paris and the Lucerne Festival. It’s now the Australian National Academy of Music’s turn to welcome members of Ensemble Modern to Melbourne to lead a survey of some of the most startling music of the past decade, together with the occasional 20th century classic.
