Local Heroes: A Multitude of Voices

Wednesday 9 October 2019
Primrose Potter Salon, Melbourne Recital Centre

Arcadia Winds presents a program where multiple voices come together in many different ways.

This theme is explored first through the idea of counterpoint: in a Trio Sonata by the master of counterpoint himself, J.S. Bach; and in the hypnotic and otherworldly Vermont Counterpoint by Steve Reich. In the second half, many different perspectives are represented. A bright new voice in the Australian compositional landscape will be heard, as Arcadia Winds perform the winning piece from the 2019 Arcadia Winds Composition Prize. Finally, a brand new work for wind quintet and tape by Andrew Ford will depict the perspectives of rural Australians featured in the paintings of Arthur Streeton.
