W. A. MOZART: Requiem in D major (K. 626)
M. BUDOS: Adria’s Confessions - a Book Concerto (Work inspired by the book Jo Confesso by Jaume Cabré)
The Orchestra of the Reial Cercle Artístic de Barcelona presents the world premiere of Adrià’s Confessions – a concerto for guitar and orchestra, inspired by Jaume Cabré’s novel Jo Confesso (Confessions). The piece, written by the Australian composer Marian Budos, will be interpreted by guitarist Jacob Cordover. This concerto musically recreates each chapter of the book and presents the audience a new way to feel the novel’s story of love revolving around an instrument.
The first half of the concert will feature the Requiem by Mozart, with a bespoke set designed to raise our consciousness of the degradation of our planet’s natural environment. With this in mind, we will donate a percentage of all ticket sales to help with the recovery and protection of the unique Australian flora and fauna that was devastated by the recent destructive bush fires. Furthermore, we will also open an honorary Row 0, to allow people to purchase these symbolic tickets to help raise money and awareness of this tragedy.
