Queensland Symphony Orchestra and Brisbane Festival, in association with Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University present

Spirit of the Wild: A Vision of Nature

Spirit of the Wild: A Vision of Nature

A voyage to some of the wildest natural places.

A musical response to climate change featuring two major works, Nigel Westlake: Spirit of the Wild for solo oboe (Diana Doherty) and John Luther Adams: Become Ocean for large orchestra. Captain of this voyage into the wild is Chief Conductor Umberto Clerici. John Luther Adams’ visceral work Become Ocean does more than evoke the pull of the tides. 

It invites you to become one with the sea itself – to remember life’s humble beginnings on our water-based planet and ponder a future in which we return to its depths. Equally as evocative is Nigel Westlake’s Spirit of the Wild, brought to life by Australian oboe royalty Diana Doherty

Her vivid performance will transport you to Tasmania’s rugged South West wilderness where nature reigns supreme. This existential program exudes chaos of epic proportions with stirring music from Haydn’s The Creation.
