ADCH - Heroines


Van Diemen’s Band invites you to explore the historic borderlands of Europe.

For centuries, generations of composers wrote music as their homelands changed ownership under their feet. Cultural overlaps at the border fringes created a fascinating musical backdrop to the tumult of the Thirty Years War and the meeting of cultures at the edges of the Holy Roman and Ottoman Empires. An atmosphere of division, boundaries, climate and common ground, themes which resonate strongly even in our lives today.

Julia Fredersdorff, artistic director/violin, has curated a programme that explores the sublime simplicity of music of the early baroque period, works startling for their originality and spirited evocations of battles and dances, as well as a new commission by Donald Nicolson, written especially for the program —all performed with the raw freshness that audiences have come to know from music on gut strings and instruments of the past. The perfect symbiosis of old and new.

Whispering Walls

Recorded live at Rosny Farm, Sunday 14 May 2023

Whispering Walls is a celebration of the Tasmanian landscape and how it has shaped the people who live here.

Van Diemen’s Fiddles have curated a program drawn from traditional music from Tasmanian songbooks, original compositions inspired by Tasmanian rivers, mountains and caves, and the community networks embedded within.

Accompanied by spectacular visual projections by Caleb Miller, poetry readings by Tasmanian poets Daniel Townsend and Adrienne Eberhardt, and tales from times gone by by local storytellers, this is a multimedia experience to not be missed.
