Souvenirs
SSO Fellows

From the absurd to the sublime – the talented SSO Fellows present a concert that will be something to write home about.

This program begins with a zany little trumpet concerto based on Ligeti’s opera Le Grand Macabre. There’s a complete change of mood with the bell-like serenity of Arvo Pärt’s Fratres, setting us up for the wind octet by Finnish master Rautavaara. After interval we move to 19th-century Russia. Glazunov evokes Orthodox spirituality with his solemn In modo religioso, and Tchaikovsky summons the atmosphere of Italy in the gorgeous melodies and sumptuous sounds of his Souvenir de Florence.

This concert is dedicated to the memory of James Fairfax AC, whose generosity supported the formation and development of the SSO Fellowship program. 

Duration: 2 hours, including 20-minute interval

 

Tickets will be available on the door from 2pm Sunday 26 November.
