CAM is back with a fantastic concert of music for the unusual combination of violin and harp. After the initial challenge of finding Australian repertoire for these instruments, it was a great discovery to find music by Nigel Westlake and Eric Gross in the Australian Music Centre catalogue.

Book tickets online £5 – £6

Nigel’s 2007 arrangement Beneath the midnight sun originates from his film score for Antarctica, and evokes a serene, icy landscape, while the Viennese born Eric Gross delivers a well crafted and attractive Rondino Pastorale with a clear sense of structure. To the best of CAM’s knowledge, both works will be receiving their UK premiere.

CAM Director, Wendy Hiscocks says:

‘I had the privilege of meeting both composers in Sydney many years ago. Nigel and I were much younger composers at that time, with the former labelled by the celebrated Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe as the Pacific Minimalist who was ‘going places’. Eric was my first kind and patient composition teacher at Sydney University. To this day, I can still hear the sound of his voice with its thick Viennese accent and the smell of his pipe tobacco.’

The venue for this CAM recital is especially interesting. Referred to as the ‘painted church’, All Saints’ decorations and fittings boast designs by Bodley and Morley, and there are stencilled patterns, exotic floral friezes and window designs by William Morris to admire.
