Newcastle Music Festival | Toasting Mother Earth
11 August 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm AEST$24 – $49
Newcastle Music Festival proudly presents Anna Fraser and Jack Symonds, performing works ranging from the antiphony of Hildegard of Bingen, nearly 1000 years ago, through settings of the modern mysticism of Walter de la Mare, and the laments of the ill-fated Lili Boulanger, to two world premieres: Ross Fiddes’ very contemporary “Toasting Mother Earth” and Jack Symonds’ five Nocturnes for piano, entitled Guardare, meravigliarsi…
This incredible concert journeys through the world of American minimalism, Japanese music fusing Eastern and Western traditions, and new Australian works.
Anna says: “Each piece selected for this programme … sends provocative messages for us all to be more attuned to the miniscule changes in our environment (like the yearly changes of the season) and not to allow ourselves to be complacent about caring for our shared ‘home’ but to make active changes each day to sustain our existence on this unique planet.”
This concert will be an artistic and musical highlight of the festival – don’t miss it.
