RUSH HOUR #10: MOTION
#CONCERTLAB
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

There are two performances of this Free Rush Hour Concert: 6.00pm and 8.00pm
Duration approximately one hour

Sibelius Scene with Cranes 
Takemitsu Tree Line
Rautavaara Cantus Arcticus

Maxime Tortelier conductor
Imogen Knight movement director

Nature never stands still: trees grow, birds migrate, species evolve. In music inspired by something so inherently kinetic, could musicians be equally liberated from their usual concert hall positions? Devised with Imogen Knight from Amadeus, subtle motions and gestures will infiltrate the performance.

Rautavaara’s concerto mixes recordings of larks and swans, nature’s Arctic musicians, with a mystical, organic accompaniment. Sibelius takes the beauty of cranes in flight and captures it in musical form, while Tree Line builds a world in which wisps of melodies germinate from ever-changing perspectives.

FREE CONCERT

No booking required, just turn up.

Please note that due to the theatrical nature of the performance, latecomers will not be admitted.
