Dramatic Skies 2: Cumulus
Cumulus maps a dramatic voyage, from deep melancholy touched with hints of hope in the Grieg, through a quirky reflection of Ravel’s life and music from Schifrin’s unique point of view, and deep into Smetana’s mournful response to the death of his daughter.
These billowing global masterpieces come to surround and embrace the eminent locals at the heart of the programme - two edgy works by Kiwi composers at the peak of creativity: a rediscovery of Alex Taylor’s remarkable set of rugged miniatures burlesques mécaniques, and the premiere of a mist-covered new work from Jenny McLeod.
Programme 1 hour, no interval with selections from:
Grieg: Andante Con Moto
Schifrin: Hommage a Ravel
Taylor: burlesques mécaniques
Smetana: Piano Trio in G minor
