City Choir Dunedin presents: Sea & Land
Saturday 8 August 2015, 7:30 pm, Knox Church
City Choir Dunedin presents Sea & Land, a programme of diverse and colourful music from around the world, conducted by David Burchell. Accompanied by the award-winning St Kilda Brass Band, and featuring pianist Sandra Crawshaw, the Choir will also be joined by Mezzo-soprano Claire Barton and Tenor Samuel Madden.
“Songs of Sea and Land” is a collection of seven New Zealand folk songs, arranged for choir by Auckland composer David Hamilton. He has arranged the accompaniment for brass especially for this performance. The songs mostly have a sea-faring theme, reflecting the importance of the sea in the early years of the European settlement of New Zealand.
“The Rio Grande” was written by Constant Lambert in 1927, and it achieved instant and long-lasting fame and is performed almost worldwide. Set to a poem by Sachaverell Sitwell, it is an example of symphonic jazz, not unlike the style of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”, although it is very much Lambert’s individual conception. It combines piano, band and choir with jazzy syncopations, ragtime and Brazilian influences, ‘big band’ harmonies and rhythms and the traditional English choral sound.
Also on the programme is a variety of folk songs from around the world, reflecting the diverse origins of contemporary New Zealanders, and including a group of traditional Afrikaans songs arranged for this concert by David Burchell.
