As part of the 2012 Sound Stream collective, there will be, for this last part of the year, a performance of the seminal work:' The Rite of Spring' , which has inspired a century of music. Featuring two world premieres by Paul Grabowsky and Mary Finsterer, there will be no less inspiration, with this concert.
Paul Grabowsky and Gabriella Smart, will perform Stravinsky's own transcription for two pianos, of 'The Rite of Spring' on Friday, October 12 at Elder Hall, North Terrace. Bookings can be made on www.trybookings.com/BGNY
Alternatively, in October, there will be: 'The Violin Speaks', with Jon Rose, who performs prolifically in major festivals around the world.
Being 'an extraordinary Australian visionary', Rose challenges, commands and 'explores the boundaries of sound' in one of Adelaide's or even Australia's most beautiful and awe inspiring buildings; ' he is a musician, improviser, speaker and instrument creator, who highlights the rich diversity of Australia's music history', and showcases it.
With what promises to be both a unique and exhilarating performance, Rose exhibits music which has been all but ignored by the establishment, but cannot be by us!
What else could you want to do in Spring, but hear the strains of this season?
