Sally Beamish: The Tempest @ Wortham Theatre Center, Houston
May 25 @ 7:30 pm

In remembrance of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, David Bintley is creating a fantastical production of The Tempest, set to a commissioned score by British composer Sally Beamish. At once stormy and sweet, Bintley’s Tempest promises to be an exciting recount of Shakespear’s supernatural tale. Banished to a deserted island with his daughter, Miranda, Prospero conjures up a horrific storm in which a magical story unfolds. It’s an enchanted yarn filled with drama, passion, a struggle for power and, of course, love.

Cryptic: Oscillon Response @ Mareel, Shetland
May 26 @ 8:00 pm

Composer and visual artist Mark Lyken interprets the forefather of Electronic Art, Ben F Laposky’s pioneering “Oscillon” Electronic Abstractions. Working in collaboration with Sanford Museum, Iowa this Cryptic commission for Sonica 2015 merges Lyken’s sonic responses and visualisations with Laposky’s groundbreaking 1950’s art works.

Responding to a selection of six strikingly different photographic works capturing complex, rhythmic waveforms, not only are Laposky’s images a visual inspiration for Lyken’s compositions but the original process behind the creation of the artworks has been utilised to generate the accompanying visuals for the performance.

Gòrecki         Three pieces in old style
Chopin          Two Nocturnes [arr. David Matthews]
Bacewicz      Concerto for String Orchestra
Czyz              Canzona di Barocco for String Orchestra
Dvořák           String Quintet in G major, Op. 77 [arr. string orchestra]

 

Introducing your guide, Polish-born Bartosz Woroch – a gifted violinist specialising in chamber and solo violin, taking us across Eastern Europe on a musical journey of discovery!

To Poland! Where Grazyna Bacewicz, one of the country’s first female composers, wrote her much-lauded 1948 concerto, which fuses tradition and modernity with vivacious gusto, energy and inventive flair.

To France! Where Chopin wrote Opus 37, No.2 and Opus 55, No.1, performed now in this exquisite string orchestra arrangement (and SE commission) by David Matthews, who translates the delicate piano melodies into beautifully meandering lines for solo violin.

To Czech Republic! …to end the evening with one of Dvorák’s most well-known quintets, scored with double bass to create a deep, romantic richness.
