MUSICON 8 – 20th Century Music 4: The 1980s
11 February 2018 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The final concert in the Musicon 20th Century Music Festival presents works from the 1980s, performed by the Ives Ensemble.
Salvatore Sciarrino Anamorfosi
Pauline Oliveros The Well
Luigi Nono Hay Que Caminar “Sonando”
Laurence Crane Trio for Ros and Peter
Pauline Oliveros The Gentle
Mark Carroll 18 Kisses with eyes closed (world premiere)
This final concert in our festival brings together some of the most intimate pieces from the 1980s. Oliveros lets us delve deep into our own listening, while Nono’s very last composition, for two violins, takes us on a journey into a gentle yet unknown future. In a rare expression of poignant yet tasteful musical humour, Sciarrino brings us the ultimate piece of water music, by creating a mash-up of Ravel and a certain popular musical tune that does not need any further introduction. We end the festival with a brand new large-scale work by Newcastle based composer Mark Carroll, who combines elements of Chopin with the poetry of Morton Feldman’s late compositions.
