Spanish baroque music in Sydney like you’ve never seen before

If there’s one thing you should know about the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra in Sydney, is that it’s good. And they manage to produce a sound as stunning as the best orchestras around without as many in the assembly as the likes of the Sydney or Melbourne Symphony Orchestras. With a lot more charisma.

Their latest performance is centred around Spanish Baroque music, fused with contemporary circus that is actually quite flooring. It’s a combination of barefoot musicianship, played around an impressive medley of circus performers creating some legitimately unbelievable shapes and movements with their bodies that complement the music in a way you really wouldn’t have thought.

They flew in a Spanish guitar player from Rome and have enough of a barrage of Spanish drums and castanets to keep your heart beating after you see a circus performer plummet to the ground on a pole, face first. They keep it interesting to say the least.

Spanish Baroque is on until 16 May. See where and get tickets here.
