Queensland Youth Symphony Pictures
Queensland Youth Orchestra
Queensland Youth Symphony
Join the Queensland Youth Symphony, Canticum Women’s Choir and conductor Simon Hewett for an exploration of music inspired by pictures. After seeing a series of impressionist paintings by James Abbott Whistler, Debussy vividly portrays in his Nocturnes the mysterious effects of nocturnal light: a solemn procession of clouds; the colour and movement of a town festival and the play of light on the sea at night.
The famous tales of Arabian nights were the source of inspiration for Ravel’s Scheherazade featuring the wonderful young soprano Nina Korbe. And to conclude, perhaps the most famous depiction of visual art through music: the death of Mussorgsky’s close friend, painter Victor Hartmann in 1873, caused the composer profound grief. As a tribute Mussorgsky composed Pictures at an Exhibition, a brilliant depiction in sound of a visit to an exhibition of Hartmann’s pictures.
