Celebrating Australian Music (CAM) comes to Cambridge
April 3, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Celebrating Australian Music (CAM) is back with a fantastic concert in Cambridge on 3 April. Philippa Mo (pictured) and Gabriella Dall’Olio have created music with the unusual combination of violin and harp, respectively.
It will be a feast for the eyes and the ears as the venue, All Saints Church – aka the “painted church” – boasts decorations and fittings designed by Bodley and Morley, along with stencilled patterns, exotic floral friezes and window designs by William Morris.
Featuring two UK premieres, as well as older favourites, the programme will include:
Nigel Westlake (1958 – ) Beneath the midnight sun (UK premiere)
Wendy Hiscocks (1963 – ) Caprice for solo violin
Eric Gross (1926 – 2011) Rondino pastorale (UK premiere)
Camille Saint-Saëns (1835 – 1921) Fantasie
After the initial challenge of finding Australian repertoire for these instruments, music by Nigel Westlake and Eric Gross was found in the Australian Music Centre catalogue. Nigel’s 2007 arrangement Beneath the midnight sun originates from his film score for Antarctica, and evokes a serene, icy landscape, while the Viennese born Eric Gross delivers a well crafted and attractive Rondino Pastorale with a clear sense of structure.
