FATA MORGANA

FATA MORGANA


Evelyn Glennie: solo work
Pēteris Vasks: World Premiere for 2 violins
Antonio Vivaldi: Double Concerto for two violins
Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis
Pēteris Vasks: Lonely Angel for violin and strings
Jill Jarman: Mindstream for percussion, violin, and strings

OCMF 2017 welcomes a true world star of music, Polar Music Prize- winner Dame Evelyn Glennie, to play an exciting jazz-influenced concerto Mindstream for violin and percussion, dedicated to Evelyn Glennie and Hugo Ticciati. It is complemented by the fireworks of a Vivaldi double concerto, and contrasted with two glowing meditations. One is the glorious, mystic yet passionate Tallis Fantasia. For the other we welcome our remarkable composer-in-residence, Latvian Peteris Vasks, whose intensely beautiful works prove that new music doesn’t have to be difficult and abrasive. His violin concerto imagines a Lonely Angel looking down on Earth, “concerned, yet hopeful”.

STOP PRESS!  a world première too! of Vasks’ new violin duet, written specially for Priya Mitchell and Hugo Ticciati. 

The composer Jill Jarman will give an introduction to her piece Mindstream one hour before the concert.

Duration: 2:30 with interval
