Description

The Sound of Pictures

Hosted by Andrew Ford

Presented by Radio National’s The Music Show host, Andrew Ford, this program represents a new offering from the Australia Ensemble: an exploration of music written by composers for film as well as concert music that makes use of the moving image as part of its presentation. We explore music by some of the famous names from the screen as well as music by Andrew Ford himself, and a new work by Felicity Wilcox that explore the sound of pictures in novel and exciting ways.

Andrew Ford Scherzo Perpetuo for string quartet and film

Felicity Wilcox New Work (world premiere) for flute, clarinet, percussion, piano and film

plus works of composers including Bernard Herrmann, Nino Rota, Arthur Benjamin and Dmitri Shostakovich



Music has the power to propel us to unimagined places and transport us to many states through myriad emotions. To this end our 2017 season, Voyages, ventures through a diverse array of such musical excursions, establishing a strong sense of place while enjoying the local colours and flavours of music from particular national schools. Our season of voyages moves through Russian folklore,sweeping us on to the New World and delights of America, and delving into the sounds of the cinema screen. We are immersed in Fantasy and Variation with quintets of Vine, Nielsen and Mozart, and the titanic Schubert Octet, concluding our year's travels with a sequence of postcards from exotic destinations, ending back in Europe with Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence.

Join us in setting sail on our exciting musical Voyages in 2017.
