Oxford’s St. Michael at the North Gate will be hosting CAM’s next recital on 13 February with a programme of Australian music plus a tribute to the music of Gabriel Fauré.
Flautist Mark Underwood and pianist/CAM director Wendy Hiscocks will present Australian music tinged with exotic oriental and south-east Asian influences, alongside music resonating to the sounds of jazz.
Distinguished Australian composer and music educator, Anne Boyd wrote her much performed Goldfish through Summer Rain in 1979. Air on Pipe is by composer and flautist Brett Thompson who studied in both Australia and London.
Also featured will be Mark Underwood’s enjoyable Waltzing Matilda Variations. The other work in the programme will be Keshovatiby Wendy Hiscocks which was written in 2002. Based on a Bengali folk tale, this music theatre work for solo flute is framed by a short narrative.
Alongside these enchanting and accessible works is a tribute to the music of French composer Gabriel Fauré (1845 – 1924) whose music has been described as the link between Romanticism and 20th century romanticism.
This recital will be taking place at the historic St Michael’s at the North Gate. Its tower was built around the year 1040. At nearly 1,000 years old it is the oldest extant building in Oxford.
Entry to the recital is by donation to the Soundwell Music Therapy charity.
The event will also be live-streamed online. Full details will be on the CAM website nearer to the event.
