Philip BROWNLEE - Canzona per sonare: Degraded Echoes (Premiere)
also featuring music by: Erik SATIE Jean-Féry REBEL John CAGE Josquin DES PREZ Thomas ADÈS Thomas PRESTON Carlo GESUALDO Arvo PÄRT Mattheo da PERUGIA Louis ANDRIESSEN FLUXUS
Bridging six centuries of music, Stroma's own string quartet teams up again with early music specialists rec.sop — Kamala Bain (recorder) and Rowena Simpson (soprano) — in the beautiful surroundings of St Mary of the Angels.
Featured is a mixture of Medieval and Renaissance composers who truly 'pushed the boundaries' of music, often foreshadowing twentieth-century developments. These early works back onto selected pieces from the last century that provide a spacious environment.
We will also feature the world premiere of a new work for recorder and string quartet by Wellington composer Philip Brownlee.
