School of Music: Old Cello/New Cello Festival Other events...
3 - 8 August 2011

A festival of old and new music for 1-12 cellos spanning 3 centuries

Old meets new in an exciting festival of music composed for the cello, ranging from baroque works written in the early 18th century through to world premier compositions by UWA resident composer, Chris Tonkin, and UWA student composers. This festival will take the listener on a musical odyssey through time, timbre, texture, tone and techniques.

The cellos wide range of performance possibilities will be explored and exploited, with little-known early works performed in new ways, and newly composed music heard for the first time, developing and diverging from traditions and conventions of the past. In addition to scheduled events, there will be student guerrilla cellists performing around the UWA campus in selected venues during the festival week, embodying the Universitys Cultural Precinct.
