Natsuko Yoshimoto and James Cuddeford - Violin Duo by Benjamin Millar
Stepping away from their roles with Grainger Quartet and Sydney Soloists, Natsuko Yoshimoto and James Cuddeford made the most of tonight's extra breathing space.
Duelling Violins by Janet McKay
Violinists James Cudderford and Natsuko Yoshimoto recently performed at the Female Orphan’s School on the campus of UWS Parramatta as part of the 2008 Aurora Festival of Living Music. The program comprised works by Australian and American composers, including two solos by the iconic American composer Elliot Carter, and violin duos by established and emerging composers from both countries.
KAMMER Ensemble by Andrew Ford
What's a 97-year-old piece doing on a program promoted by the New Music Network? In the case of Arnold Schoenberg's grand-guignol cabaret Pierrot lunaire, there are plenty of reasons. The piece is a landmark in post-Romantic music – a kind of early modernist shibboleth. It contains the first important use of sprechstimme (a vocal style somewhere between speech and song), it paved the way for modern music theatre, and it brought pastiche, parody and the blackest of humour firmly into the domain of serious concert music. More prosaically, though no less importantly, it established the mixed ensemble (winds, strings and piano) as a 20th-century-music staple.
