The classical flute – 25 April
Sunday 25 April at 6pm
Haydn ‘London’ Trio for Flute, Violin and Cello
Beethoven Serenade for Flute, Violin and Viola
Donald Sparr Fantasia for Flute and Electronics: Sugarhouse
Tilmann Dehnhard Wake Up! for Piccolo & Alarm Clock
Roger Armstrong leads the chamber ensemble in this concert which features delightful classical-era chamber music as well as a couple of entertaining solos with electronics (including digital alarm clock!).
The two solo flute pieces are a fascinating foray into a decidedly 21st century world. Donald Sparr’s Fantasia for Flute and Electronics: Sugarhouse is scored for flute with live sound processing – stereophonic digital delay, and pre-recorded door harp. As well his composition work, Sparr is an electric guitarist and his music has been described a ‘pop-Romantic’, iridescent and wondrous and in the boundary erasing spirit of today’s new music world.
The other solo piece is for piccolo and digital alarm clock, by Tilmann Dehnhard, who is a German composer and jazz musician.
