Behind the scenes of Season 2024

A Burst of Baroque... in the making!

Season 2024 continues our bold mission to excite, to honour, to reinvent and to reignite the energy of early music with a creative trajectory that takes us to the far edges of the galaxy, to the limits of the imagination, to collective memories stitched into our history and culture, to the corners of the human experience and to the chambers of the heart.

In the video featured below, we draw back the curtain on the colourful season launch photoshoot day. Hear from Paul Dyer and the Brandenburg musicians involved as well as the brilliant creative minds behind the Burst of Baroque that is Season 2024.

For Season 2024, we were thrilled to once again collaborate with the brilliant Collider Studio, who provided artistic direction alongside Paul Dyer for the photoshoot and the launch video.

With a simple brief that could be summed up as "loud and colourful", Collider brought something truly epic to the table for this season launch. The concept for the season launch video was to utilise the same space for the photoshoot - the Cutaway at Barangaroo - and recreate the space in CGI along with giant inflatables that took the shape of familiar silhouettes of Baroque instruments.

See below some examples of the early sketches alongside the rendered inflatable instruments.

So, how was the final product? Watch our Season 2024 launch video below and find out!
