This beautiful series acknowledges our journey through 2020. Starting in a place of solitude - a single voice, a single violin - these concerts end in a joyous affirmation of community and shared music-making.
Under the magnificent Blue Whale skeleton in Hackett Hall WA soprano Sara Macliver, performs from the floor of this striking venue before being joined from the balconies by Wind Quintet Plus.
Sara Macliver is one of Australia’s most revered and versatile artists, with a pure, pitch perfect, silvery soprano that is instantly recognisable. She begins and ends this concert with female composers - Hildegard von Bingen and a new work from WA composer Rebecca Erin Smith, a response to the whale’s presence. In between, she is joined by wind and percussion ensemble WQ+ for a stunning performance featuring Canteloube’s Songs of the Auvergne, a selection of lieder from Richard Strauss, Schumann’s Dichterliebe and moments from Mozart’s Wind Serenades.
Featured non-Australian music: Canteloube, R. Strauss, Mozart
