Event description

Description

Join Dual Aura’s Monica Schmidt Andersen (Recorder) and Ben Dollman (violin) as they take you on an exciting journey of discovery through the life force of world music. Starting with the Celtic tradition originating from Scotland and Ireland, you will hear the beautiful slow air Black is the Colour that took roots later in the Appalachian region of North America, a traditional Scottish waltz When she Came and a fiery strathspey, with variations by the 19th century violinist Scott Skinner. Moving on to Denmark with music originating from Sønderho on the island of Fan, then on to North Germany with Telemann providing a counterpoint to the folk traditions, and further to the fascinating world of Breton folk music and culture originating from Brittany in northern France. The concert concludes with one of Australia’s finest composers, Ross Edwards, highlighting his Ecstatic Dance representing an early highlight of his ´maninya` style – a joyful and dance-like form inspired by both traditional music of the world and by the natural environment of Australia.

Monica Schmidt Andersen is one of Denmark’s finest emerging musicians and is building a creative career in performance on recorders in diverse forms. Ben Dollman is one of Australia’s leading performers on baroque violin, having held the position of Principal Violin in the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra for over ten years.
