Event Details

Thoroughbass performs fantasias and fandangos - music from or influenced by the Spanish baroque. Vigorous rhythms, outlandish dissonance and heart-felt melodies are the soul of Spain. The past lives in the present in this concert with present-day music based on that of centuries ago. In his suite Fantasia para un Gentilhombre Rodrigo really lets his imagination fly. Basing this set of 4 movements on the baroque and folk music of Spain, we hear marches, dances, songs and the raw street sounds of foot-stamping, hand-clapping and guitar-strums. Stephen Yates’ modern-day take on an anonymous Spanish 18th century fandango resulted in his own melodramatic fantasy Fandangle Indeed. Wind back the clock a couple of centuries and we find Domenico Scarlatti doing a similar thing. His sonatas for harpsichord reveal strangely modern dissonances, insistent patterns and heart-breaking melodies set to guitar-like accompaniments. Eerily similar in style is Bach’s Fantasia in C minor.

Featured non-Australian music: J.S. Bach, Diego Ortiz, D. Scarlatti, Rodrigo
