KAMMER Ensemble begins their 2009 New Music Network concert with a world premiere written by composer, violinist and member of the ensemble, James Cuddeford. This is followed by Wolfgang Rihm’s Fremde Szenen. A fiercely powerful and expressive work from one of Germany’s most important, living composers. His works fully absorb the intensity (and implications) of Schoenberg’s expressionistic masterpieces. Composer and conductor Paul Stanhope ends the first half of the program with excerpts for his song cycle Four Cabaret Songs from Love Lines, using the text from poetry by Michael Leunig. Renowned cabaret artist Nadia Piave, Paul Stanhope and KAMMER Ensemble perform one of the most influential and important works of the 20th Century, Pierrot Lunaire, an artist’s journey through the inner psyche.
Featured non-Australian music: Rihm, Schoenberg (Pierrot Lunaire)
