Event Details

As well as being a fairly accurate summation of the life of a PhD student and single mother to a toddler, the title of today’s program (“…where time suffers…”) is taken from a quote by Federico Garcia Lorca, which is intoned by players during the performance of George Crumb’s Eleven Echoes of Autumn, 1965. This work is one of three in today’s program that provide an historical backdrop to my PhD research into flutist-composer collaborations, the other two being Saariaho’s Dolce Tormento and Sciarrino’s Esplorazione del Bianco II. More specifically, I am interested in how such collaborations increase the potential for new sounds and sound worlds to be discovered and integrated into the flute’s language.

Performers: Janet McKay - flutes; Graeme Jennings - violin; Nicholas Harmsen - clarinet; Paul Ballam-Cross - guitar; Alex Raineri - piano

Featured non-Australian music: Reza Vali 'Song'; Salvatore Sciarrino 'Esplorazione del Bianco II', Kaija Saariaho 'Dolce Tormento'; George Crumb 'Eleven Echoes of Autumn, 1965'
