SPELLBOUND


Pēteris Vasks: White Scenery for piano solo
Alexander Glazunov: Oriental Reverie for clarinet and strings
Maurice Ravel: Trio for violin, cello and piano
Miklós Rosza: Spellbound for theremin and ensemble

A phantasmagorical ride through landscapes of the mind - are they real, or beautiful mirages? Vasks’ hypnotic White Scenery is deep, deep snow, where distances dissolve and we lose contact with the Earth. Glazunov dreams of a languorous, mysterious East; Ravel layers slices of Basque dance and Malaysian poetry to concoct something dazzlingly French. Finally we visit the movies, the ultimate mirage, where images collide to convince us of the impossible. As impossible as the incredible sound produced from the theremin by hands waving through thin air – in the soundtrack to Hitchcock’s Spellbound.

Duration: 1:00 with no interval
