Ensemble Volate present Regermination: Songs of Solace and Renewal in the Australian Landscape

Regermination is a joyful and cathartic dedication to the boundless landscapes and iconic birdlife of Australia where audiences can bathe their ears in a set of lush new works. Six glorious contemporary art songs and a solo piano piece celebrate the deep connection to nature and the restorative, consoling effect it has on the troubled mind.

Conceived in isolation, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the music seeks to find a remedy for loneliness through mindful observation of the natural world around us. It is Ensemble Volante’s intention to take the listener on a journey where they can find solace, calm, and most of all, heartfelt hope for the future within a turbulent, ever-changing world.

Each art song features the powerful poetic words of lyricist Grazia Marin, soaring melodies sung by critically-acclaimed soprano Piera Dennerstein, alongside the striking yet sensitive piano refrains from composer and pianist Alisha Redmond.

With a limited run of six shows throughout venues in Melbourne and regional Victoria, join Ensemble Volante for an experience not to be missed.

Ensemble Volante is comprised of Alisha Redmond (composer/pianist), Piera Dennerstein (soprano) and Grazia Marin (visual artist/lyricist). Formed in 2018 their work seeks to inspire the listener with a sense of wonder and immersion in the natural world through song.

“I want to write music that is like an old friend: in which you can always rely on for reassurance, companionship, and peace of mind.” – Alisha Redmond
