Ensemble Offspring And Ironwood Join For Broken Consorts


Clash or confluence? Ensemble Offspring, Sydney’s innovative New Music ensemble, and Ironwood, specialists in early music join forces to create new sounds in Broken Consorts.

Ensemble Offspring says “Like floating through a forest, Broken Consorts envelops the audience in a cocoon of bristlings, warblings and ethereal reverberations—a musical experience that exists across and beyond time.”
