Idyll - music of the pastoral and the picturesque

Date: 
Sun, 02/07/2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Idyll - music of the pastoral and the picturesque
Music has a unique ability to paint an idealised picturesque world well beyond the prosaic reality of our lived experience: from the mythology of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas to the contemporary rural bliss of Elgar’s Sea Pictures; from the tranquility of Alfen’s Still, Still the Woods to the passionate allegory of Sibelius’ Captive Queen.

In this concert we explore a range of mainly English and Scandinavian pastoral works which paint idyllic pictures of worlds we can only imagine.

Brahms German Requiem

Date: 
Sun, 23/07/2017 - 2:00pm - 4:30pm

Brahms’ greatest and most frequently performed choral work, completed in 1866, has proved to be universally popular.

The Willoughby Symphony Choir, one of the finest community choirs in Australia, will present this work in a spine-tingling and exciting performance with a large orchestra and soloists, under the baton of Peter Ellis.

The work does not follow the traditional text and form of the Requiem Mass but instead has been set to selected passages from the Lutheran Bible. Hopes, fears and resurrection are emphasised rather than church-based spirituality, faith and judgement.
