With their usual eclectic mix of high and low, light and shade, thin and crispy, Ady returns to this year's 4MBS Festival of Classics with a program designed to entertain and illuminate, and looks at all things dreamy and boogie.
CPE Bach was given free reign to explore new sonorities and freedom of expression in his six strings symphonies, and they are just as entertaining and engaging as they were when they were written in the 1770s- only a handful of years after Cook arrived in Australia. Embracing the history and natural landscape of the original inhabitants of Australia, Sculthorpe’s Third String Sonata incorporates rhythms and melodies derived from Aboriginal tribes in the north of the country, and the occasional noisy flock of seagulls here and there. Yamaha Artist Paula Russell joins us as we perform another work by Sydney composer Mike Forsyth. Paula will also give us her best opera diva impersonation as she performs Strauss haunting Wiegenlied (lullaby). Lisa Cheney joins us again in 2014 with a new work, plus music from Elgar’s Serenade, and some unexpected surprises. Please join us for another eclectic show. We'd love to see you there!
