Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold

Theories of cosmic harmony resonate throughout music history, whether presenting ideas of a sounding ‘music of the spheres’ or exploring music as a metaphor for universal harmony. Yet rather than focus on cosmic harmony in today’s programme, we present a programme of music by Rebel and Telemann which ventures to the edge of cosmic chaos. In between these composed works, we improvise a suite of Spanish dances banned in the seventeenth century. Feared for their lascivious quality and the potential they held to cause social chaos, these dances were officially banned from receiving either musical or danced performances on stage.

25 September 2018 1:00 pm Martin Lawrence Horn, Terror & Bliss

This is the latest in a series of classical 'happenings', where Martin Lawrence, horn player, researcher and improvising curator, puts together a concert-collage featuring some of his extensive network of friends in the worlds of symphonic, contemporary and historically-informed music. It is a chance for the musicians to experiment, fulfill performance dreams, and have artistic control. It is a chance for the audience to hear live the best musicians from the best orchestras, doing what they want instead of what a conductor demands!

Expect high quality, playfulness, integrity and surprise.
