A sparkling selection of chamber music, Cocktail Music program comprises works for two flutes, piano with a splash of cello. Featuring the World Premiere of Dragonfly by Australian composer A. Hallam, with two Australian Premieres – N. Kapustin’s Trio for Flute, Cello and Piano and A. Rozman’s The Two Rivers for two flutes and piano.
Join the Ensemble in Mosman Art Gallery on Saturday the 12th of October (doors open 5.30 pm) for a cocktail exclusively prepared for you by Australia’s most highly awarded distillery Archie Rose Distilling Co. With an infusion of zesty Flute, Piano and Cello repertoire, mixed with the deliciousness and zing of carefully crafted cocktails, Tonic Ensemble have created the perfectly balanced experience that marries musical context to refreshing drink flavours. A perfectly proportioned harmonious relationship allows the fusion of musical melodies and beautiful botanicals to form and create an overwhelming symbiotic mixture that is a sensory experience to be consumed by the audience.
Tonic Ensemble is the culmination of over a decade of collaboration between four established musicians – Svetlana Yaroslavskaya (Flute), Jacinta Mikus (Flute and Alto Flute), Amanda Lee (piano) and Ezmi Pepper (Cello). Like the perfect blended cocktail, each musician brings their own elements and flavour. While individually stunning and exquisite, the combination of the ingredients will surprise and delight.
With a lot of spice and a little twist, Tonic Ensemble invites you to experience how they do music best. This program is presented as a bespoke menu of music, accompanying cocktails and conversation, as they launch on to the Sydney music scene in collaboration with Archie Rose Distilling Co.
