The Bourbaki Ensemble: many moods for strings


The Bourbaki Ensemble: many moods for strings

  • Date: Sunday, 16 August 2015, 2:30pm
  • Venue: St Stephen's Church, Newtown — 189 Church St, Newtown, NSW
  • Tickets: Adults: $32 | Children: $22 | Concession: $22

Event Details

A programme of diverse moods, ranging from the nonchalance of the Honegger Concerto (which does, however, centre upon a slow movement of a more lyrical atmosphere), through the romanticism of Arensky and the operatism (is that a word?) of Puccini, to Sculthorpe's impassioned, sometimes even angry, plea for the environment. Cowell's "Hymns and Fuguing Tunes" (one for strings alone, one with oboe) inhabit a world of neoclassical serenity, while Priaulx Rainier's "Movement", in virtue of its journey from darkness to light, performs a transitional function in this programme.

Featured non-Australian music: Honegger, Concerto da Camera; Arensky, Variations on a Theme of Tchaikovsky; Puccini, Crisantemi; Cowell, Hymns and Fuguing Tunes No.5 and No.10; Rainier, Movement for String Orchestra.
