Global Austria (3), Thursday 25th April 2013, 7.00pm | Austrian Cultural Forum London
Entry Free, advance booking essential.
Ensemble Amorpha return to the Austrian Cultural Forum to present Global Austria (3). A concert of works by composers whose creative lives have been shaped by the musical energies of Austria. It will include composers who are native Austrians alongside those who have been or are still creatively active in the country.
The international nature of the work that the ACF London do gave rise to the first Global Austria programme in 2011. The idea was simple to unite the music of a collection of composers who had been influenced by Austria. This took the form of young composers who had studied/lived in Austria, established composers working in Austria and figures from Austria’s rich musical tradition. This premise underpins the third Global Austria project with a focus on the voice. Ensemble Amorpha is thrilled to welcome two guest artists to join us for this concert, the pianist John Reid and soprano Anna Denis.
Julia Purgina - AO-JO Gesange (soprano/piano)
Johannes Maria Staud – Peras (piano)
Olga Neuwirth –Spleen I (Bass Clarinet)
Schoenberg Cabaret Songs (soprano/piano)
