Sydney Chamber Choir joins forces with internationally acclaimed percussionist Claire Edwardes in a program which explores both contemporary and Renaissance music inspired by nature. Cloudburst by the choral ‘superstar’ Eric Whitacre, for chorus, piano, percussion and handbells, is probably his best-known work. It’s partnered here with music by his contemporaries: American composer Morten Lauridsen’s Fire Songs and Norwegian Ola Gjeilo’s beautifully haunting work The Spheres, inspired by the planets. Also featured in the program is a work by Ross Edwards, the World Premiere of a new commission by Stephen Adams titled Afterwards, the transcendent Geography VI by Sydney Chamber Choir’s Musical Director, Paul Stanhope and madrigals by Monteverdi, Josquin and Brumel as well as Benjamin Britten’s Five Flower Songs.
Featured non-Australian music: Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, Ola Gjeilo, Britten, Josquin, Monteverdi and Brumel.
