"The girl for whom he was beginning to nourish an extraordinary tenderness was at this time ensphered by the same harmonies as those which floated into his ears; and the thought was a delight to him." - Thomas Hardy, Jude The Obscure

Allow TYO1 to lead you on a journey to the mysterious and fantastic with our Ensphered concert featuring Launceston composer Peter Sculthorpe's work Memento Mori, which was conjured by the monumental beauty of the landscape of Easter Island. Camille Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre tells a narrative story based on a French superstition whereby Death visits in person on Halloween.

Mendelssohn's fairy fantasy, A Midsummer Night's Dream Overture was written when he was only 17 years old and was ground breaking musically in that it is credited as being the first work not merely to introduce, but to represent a literary work in its entirety. The final piece on the program is Schubert's Unfinished Symphony which is described by Tom Service in the Guardian as "one of the greatest and strangest of the genre...this symphony opens with a ghost, with music that sounds like a revenant of a dream. A pianissimo shadow in the cellos and basses functions as an eight-bar introduction to another musical spectre, the first theme proper of the symphony, an embodiment of melancholy in the oboe and clarinet over a nervous shimmer of semiquavers in the strings".
