Appearing for the first time at BIFEM, young Brisbane ensemble Kupka’s Piano has already built a solid international reputation for their dynamic performances, and this triple-bill concert promises to enhance their profile further as one of the country’s most promising new music ensembles. Originally from Singapore, Parisian composer Diana Soh’s Incantare:take 2 is a ritualistic exploration of the multiple meanings of the work’s title, which in Latin means ‘to sing’, ‘to repeat with words’ and ‘to consecrate with spells’.

Liam Flenady explores ritual in a different way with his quasi-modular work Braneworlds, inspired by Lisa Randall’s book on multidimensional physics Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions. Rounding out this concert is the highly anticipated new ensemble work Fray by one of Australia’s most in-demand composers, Elliott Gyger.
