In this concert of contrasts, two biblical women, Eve and Jezebel are given angelic voice by Australian soprano Jane Sheldon. Fauré’s luminous setting of Belgian poet Charles Van Lerberghe’s poems captures both ancient and modern worlds in its impressionistic evocation of anxious rapture.
Colours abound in this beautifully crafted recital from Aura Go. Introducing herself with The Fiddlers – a series of brief fantasias on old rustic folk dances by Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, notable for their neo-classical beauty, she will then launch us into Liza’s Lim’s Sema, inspired by ritualistic whirling Sufi dances. The centrepiece is Ravel’s glorious and evocative musical descriptions of his colleagues from the avant-garde artist group ‘Les Apaches’ in his loved work Miroirs.
Tales of travel and journeys - physical, metaphysical, psychological and emotional - are interwoven to explore some of the most profound aspects of human nature. The program features the Finnish premiere of Australian composer Andrew Ford's 'In Transit' for piano and speaker.
