PERFORMANCE: DESTINATIONS: Ives, Reich and Milligan
|DESTINATIONS: Ives, Reich and Milligan : A rare performance of profound American masterworks and a new composition by UWA Graduate Kate Milligan
Join the Perth Orchestra Project and conductor Izaak Wesson for a programme of profound American music from the 20th century, as well a new composition by Perth-born composer Kate Milligan. POP is enormously proud to present this concert of masterworks by Charles Ives and Steve Reich, both of whom meditate on the fragility, duality, displacement and mysticism of the human condition in their respective works.
Ives’ brief but intensely introspective The Unanswered Question was a work decades ahead of its time, which provides a stunning opening to the concert. Reich’s Different Trains is a monolith of 20th century music and considered a seminal memorial piece to the Holocaust. The concert concludes with a new piece by UWA composition graduate Kate Milligan for flutes, strings and electronics. The world premiere of her work Migrations is sure to provide a poignant link to our contemporary time and place.
