Opening Concert: “Cruel Sister”

30.6.2022 klo 19:00 - 21:00

Thursday 30th June 7 pm
Opening Concert: “Cruel Sister”
Taidetehdas, Avanti-sali 

Brad Lubman, conductor
Avanti! Chamber Orchestra  

Samuel Barber: Adagio for Strings
Michael Gordon: Weather One
Steve Reich: Duet for Two Solo Violins and String Orchestra
Julia Wolfe: Cruel Sister 

The opening concert of Summer Sounds is a feast of music for strings. Michael Gordon’s Weather One is a stormy plunge into musical history, which seems to be mixed up by climate change. Scored for string sextet or string orchestra, it reflects the chaotic climate changes that set Gordon wondering how the music of centuries past would sound if it were at the same time swirling around us. Weather One is influenced by Vivaldi’s motoric string writing, but the musical eddies sometimes throw up some surprises. Julia Wolfe’s driving Cruel Sister follows the emotional arc of an Old English folk ballad about a love rivalry between sisters. Steve Reich’s hypnotic polyphony acts as a father figure to the Bang on a Can compositions: the tender Duet for solo violins and strings is dedicated to Yehudi Menuhin. Samuel Barber’s masterly Adagio is a monument to American grief. 

The concert lasts approx. 1 h 45 min. Intermission.

Tickets: 42 / 35 / 15 € + order fees (starting from 1 € www.lippu.fi)
