A journey through musical fairytales, Fantasia mixes the talents of legendary clarinettist, Sabine Meyer, with The Alliage Quintett, a unique ensemble of four saxophones and a grand piano.
On this rare trip to Australia, Sabine's rightful status as one of the world's great clarinet soloists is shown in a new light as she joins the Alliage Quintett in walking the perfect line between serious virtuosity and light-hearted entertainment.
Both opulent and intimate in its appeal, this unexpected combination comes together to offer an extraordinary range of colours, orchestral in scope but with all the intimacy of the best chamber music. Follow a path full of wonder and dramatic characters including Bernstein's exuberant Candide, Dukas' unlucky little magician, and Russian fables reimagined by Stravinsky and Borodin.
