Date: Saturday 21st January 2017
A new ensemble of professional Devon-based musicians performing exceptional 20th century musical works, featuring vocalists Sarah Owen and Kate Westbrook.
Italian composer Luciano Berio’s Folk songs pay tribute to the artistry of legendary US singer, Cathy Berberian. The songs, from the US, Armenia, France, Sicily and Sardinia, were chosen from old records, printed anthologies, or collected from folk musicians and friends.
William Walton’s irresistible Façade 2, also dedicated to Berberian, sets Edith Sitwell’s jaunty poetry within colourful music.
Judith Weir is Master of the Queen’s Music and her Really? is a set of three entertaining stories by JP Hebel and The Brothers Grimm for small ensemble and voice.
The concert includes more irrepressible music by another Italian composer, Franco Donatoni, the evocative cabaret of Kurt Weill and from closer to home, Vaughan Williams’ settings of poetry by Houseman, Along the Field.
