Music of timeless beauty by Elgar, Walton and Sculthorpe
‘A luminary of Australian classical music.’ The Australian on Richard Tognetti
We must agree that the beauty of a work of art will always remain a mystery,” declared Claude Debussy. This program epitomises exactly that, as many of these pieces don’t have an explanatory narrative, but a rich vein of timeless beauty.
William Walton’s Sonata for Strings is a seemingly effortless interweaving of parts, while fellow Brit, Sir Edward Elgar’s Serenade for Strings holds a special place in the heart of the ACO and it remains a favourite for musicians and audiences alike. Peter Sculthorpe’s first Sonata for Strings, Ravel’s Two Hebrew Melodies and Debussy’s Girl with the Flaxen Hair and Interrupted Serenade complete this musical treat.
