The Man In The Other Room

The final 'Acacia Presents' program for 2015 will include the world premiere of 'The Man In The Other Room' by Australian composer Ross Fiddes with text by Samantha Fiddes, his daughter. This intriguing song cycle about a woman's love and loss comprises seven songs for soprano and string quartet, featuring wonderful soprano Anna Fraser.

Also on the program is one of Mozart's most celebrated compositions, his lyrical yet dramatic String Quartet K421 in D minor, dedicated to his mentor Joseph Haydn, followed by two beautiful works, 'Tenebrae' for string quartet and 'How Slow The Wind' for voice and strings by Argentinian /Jewish composer Osvaldo Golijov, know for his special ethereal and 'other-worldly' tones.
