Halcyon presents a captivating chamber music program for voice, cello and piano by Australian composers Andrew Schultz and Rosalind Page.
To the Evening Star is a song cycle that reflects on the creative inner life, from deep longing, through whimsy, humour and regret, to a sense of wonder at the world's beauty, finishing with acceptance of time passing. Being and Time III: Paradisotakes visual and poetic inspiration from Australian artist Imants Tillers’ Paradiso (1994), where Tillers reflects on the ways in which displaced people, escaping from debilitating circumstances, often hold great hopes for the new ‘promised land’, which in reality, is not always the case. Prelude and Postscript Opus 100 (2015) is the first set of an intended series of short piano works written during an icy winter residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada. To complete the program,Paradise, Opus 95 (2013) is a setting of the composer's own poems in which a physician observer wrestles with the small scale detail and the large scale effect of an horrific and violent event. The final two pieces will be Australian premiere performances.
