APO Composer-in-Residence Kenneth Young's new composition is a vision of a world where we can 'find peace and meaning in the rhythm of the lifeblood of the Earth'.
In a nutshell:
Majestic, dramatic and emotional music / Brilliant visuals / Music and our relationship with the environment
Water and Light is a vision of a world where our relationship with the environment and water in particular allows us to sit by a river and find peace and meaning in the rhythm of the lifeblood of the Earth (Ken Young's text for Water and Light).
Water pervades the rest of the concert. Modest Mussorgsky's introduction to his opera Khovanshchina flows with the inexorable, calm majesty of the river it depicts. The beautiful Scottish islands directly inspired Felix Mendelssohn's evocative overture.
APO Principal Flute Katie Zagórski plays Tōru Takemitsu's meditative work, his response to an Australian Aboriginal painting.
