Anne Cawrse The Rest is Silence, Concerto for Cor Anglais and Orchestra (World premiere of an MSO Commission)

About the performance

Composed in a time of extraordinary sadness in the composer’s life, Stravinsky’s Symphony in C was a piece that sustained him and gave him reason to carry on. Alongside Haydn’s Miracle Symphony and a world premiere, Nicholas Carter conducts this program celebrating new voices, new purpose and miraculous music.

A miraculous symphony

It’s believed the premiere of Haydn’s Symphony No.96 occurred at his very first London concert, in March of 1791 – the name Miracle comes from the story that a chandelier came crashing down in the hall, incredibly without injuring anyone. This incident actually occurred at a different Haydn concert, but the extraordinary circumstances are the same.

The English horn in the spotlight

Adelaide-based composer Anne Cawrse (b. 1981) has been commissioned by many outstanding Australian ensembles, including MSO, ASO, PLEXUS and the Australian String Quartet. Her new work The Rest is Silence is a musical response to the Aldous Huxley quote: “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music”.
