Inspired by the melancholic contemplation of the transience of existence.
Introduced by Matthew Barley
Mono No Aware is a Japanese concept that refers to the transience of existence and the melancholic appreciation that accompanies that.
New Zealand composer Salina Fisher took inspiration from the concept in response to a commission from Chamber Music New Zealand for a work especially for this concert.
