Ten Thousand Birds – ANAM

4 June @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

South Melbourne, VIC 3205 Australia

“The birds were my teachers,” says composer John Luther Adams, whose music is a natural extension of his long-time environmental activism. Birds have inspired composers from Mozart to Messiaen; in Adams’ case, it was hearing the song of a wood thrush for the first time that set him on his path as a composer inspired by the beauty and majesty of the natural world. In Adams’ words, Ten Thousand Birds is not a fixed composition, but “an atlas of musical possibilities for…

South Melbourne, VIC 3205 Australia

In 2019 the world of music celebrates the centenary of one of the most gifted composers to emerge from Czechoslovakia, Gideon Klein, whose career was tragically cut short by the Nazis. The music he produced in Theresienstadt concentration camp – under unimaginable circumstances – is powerful, original and captivating, and shows how greatly he was influenced by Czech master Janáček, whose suite Mládí is a gem of the wind ensemble repertoire. Dvořák’s influence on Janáček’s music was profound: how fitting then to…

Like many wealthy young Europeans of his day, Mendelssohn travelled widely and found musical inspiration on many of his journeys (think of that expressive musical picture, The Hebrides). One country brought him particular pleasure: “This is Italy! And now has begun what I have always thought... to be the supreme joy in life.” Inspired by his sojourn there, the Italian Symphony is sunshine and Chianti in music. Mendelssohn is one of the most frequently performed classical composers of them all, whereas Gideon…

ANAM Presents: Petrushka

7 September @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
Melbourne Recital Centre, Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, Southbank, 31 Sturt Street
Southbank, VIC 3006 Australia
+ Google Map

Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes changed the history of ballet and the history of music too. Stravinsky composed all of his early landmark ballet scores for Diaghilev’s company, including Petrushka. It’s all energy, lyricism, playfulness and pathos, wrapped up in kaleidoscopic orchestral colours; it doesn’t take much imagination to see Petrushka and the Ballerina in their fairground tale of love and jealousy. Romantic pursuit lies at the heart of de Falla’s El sombrero de tres picos also: the miller’s attractive young wife is being…

South Melbourne, VIC 3205 Australia

Umberto Clerici, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Cello, has created this fascinating program, which asks, in his words: “What can be considered an ‘Italian Sound’? Does it come from the precious old Italian string instruments or from the long tradition of opera and bel canto that made Italian music famous around the world?” In exploring this question, Clerici will look at three centuries of music, taking in a jewel of the Italian baroque by Vivaldi, the string quartet Verdi composed…

50 is the new 30! Strathfield Symphony at 50 years young is looking towards the next 50 years. They come together and perform through a love of music, collaboration and community. This concert is all about a bigger and better future and you can’t get much bigger than Mahler’s Symphony No.5. And just because that doesn’t give the brass nearly enough to do, they will introduce the concert with Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man. Onwards and upwards!
