APO: Alpine SymphonyClassical
Conductor Giordano Bellincampi Director Andrew Beer Ligeti Lontano J.S. Bach Orchestral Suite No.1 R. Strauss An Alpine Symphony Strauss does more than merely depict a day climbing a mountain. He convinces us that we are there. Strolling through alpine meadows, scrabbling up the rockface, standing at the summit. And you’ll be rummaging urgently for your raincoat when the storm breaks. This tremendous piece needs a gigantic orchestra and Giordano Bellincampi and the APO are joined by members of the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) to help reach the summit. ‘Lontano’ is a musical term meaning ‘play as if from a distance’, and Ligeti’s magical piece comes from other worlds. Bach’s suite is earthbound in the best way. It is human and uncomplicatedly joyous. Presented in collaboration with the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Presented in association with ICB
