18th Bangalow Music Festival 2019Left – Artistic Director, Tania Frazer

The 18th Bangalow Music Festival 2019 (BMF), one of Australia’s most formidable and long-running chamber music ensembles, has unveiled its stellar 18th BMF program under the theme of Conversations through Chamber Music. This year’s thematic is woven into a fascinating program that explores the intangible language of music – the oldest language form.

The 18th BMF 2019 program was officially launched this morning at the stunning Manor House in Bangalow, by Southern Cross Soloists’ Chair Greg Thompson and Artistic Director Tania Frazer, with guest dignitaries, local government and business, media, musicians, and cultural/arts leaders in attendance.

Over three days, peerless musicians will explore musical heritage across nine curated concerts in beautiful Bangalow’s A&I Hall from Friday August 9 to Sunday August 11. This year’s festival celebrates and explores through its program, the true essence of chamber music: communication, collaboration and conversation. It was first published 110 years ago that chamber music is the music of friends. A truly democratic form of collaborative music without hierarchy and, without conductor, inclusively equal.

Announcing the program, Artistic Director Tania Frazer said, “Music magically tells a story and begins a conversation between the performers and the listeners, capturing hidden emotions and atmospheres that belie words or descriptions and connects us to something larger than ourselves. The joy in performing chamber music is that it is a continuous conversation where each musician must listen, react, adjust and communicate on an almost constant basis. As a musical form, all performers are equal and share leading the ensemble.”
