Benjamin Britten loved to compose vocal music and the song-cycle Les Illuminations reflects the composer’s flair for word-setting. Fascinated by Rimbaud’s poems these beautifully imaginatively scored songs are ideal to illustrate the purity and beauty of Katie Noonan’s expressive voice and her legendary versatility in crossing musical genres. Pärt composed the atmospheric Cantus as a tribute to Britten and this ephemeral, otherworldly music is frequently featured in documentaries and films.
Mark Isaacs is a prolific composer with a glowing track record and ten major orchestral works to his credit. This event premieres his very first Symphony.
Featured non-Australian music: Pärt, Britten
