Camerata Strings presents “Musical Colours”
November 8 @ 3:00 pmFree
Musical Colours. Camerata Strings, conductors Patrick Shepherd and Chris Reddington
Sunday 8 November at 3.00pm, Christchurch City Art Gallery. Free admission.
Musical Colours explores the connections between what we hear and what we see and what better place to do this in than an art gallery? The atrium of the Christchurch City Art Gallery is not only a great space for musical performance but also provides another layer for the concert, that of situating the sonic within the visual. To this end, there are three world premieres in this concert, all using as their starting point paintings in the current collection at the Gallery. Barbara Maguire’s The Quiet Sea was inspired by Margaret Stoddart’s restful Diamond Harbour while Patrick Shepherd’s Not of this time uses John Pule’s Not of This Time (Dreamland) as both a conceptual and conceptual framework. Max Gimblett’s three sumi ink paintings provides the starting point for Chris Reddington’s Enso Triptych.
Also featured in the programme are Sibelius’ celebratory Andante Festivo, Panufnik’s atmospheric Landscape and Holst’s Brook Green Suite.
