Come along to see an accomplished performance of bassoon works by Perry Carter. Perry is completing his final year of Bassoon Performance at the University of Canterbury. He will be playing works by Telemann, Weber, Gilbert Vinter and John Williams. The highlight will be the first two movements of Five Sacred Trees by John Williams. The composition is an homage to the majestic and sacred qualities of trees. Williams says he wrote the concerto with the bassoon in mind, believing it to be `haunted' by `the spirit of the tree from which it is made'. Utilizing Celtic imagery and titles, each of the five movements evokes one of the legendary trees featured in the mythology of that ancient culture. The mood and tone of each section reflects the characteristics attributed to those trees. The first movement, Eo Mugna, represents the sturdiness of the oak and the second movement, Tortan, is a musical representation of the mythical tree associated with witchcraft.
