Concert number one - Creation Jazz Style.

Dixtuor by Jean Francaix
Bamboo Lights by Lei Liang (new Zealand Premiere)
Anaktoria by annis Xenakis
Creation of the World by Darius Milhaud

ACO starts its season with characteristic verve and nerve, in this diversely powerful programme. Jean Francaix's Dixtuor spins melancholic melodies with an easy charm before launching into bubbling musical somersaults. In stark contrast, Lei Liang's recently premiered Bamboo Lights creates vivid images of war in the forests of Southern China: "howling winds, flickering lights, eyes, shining, gazing, peering through the leaves..." Experience for yourself the primeval intensity of phenomenal Greek composer Iannis Xenakis' Anaktoria, a landmark work "dedicated to love in all its forms: carnal, spiritual, logical." Darius Milhaud transports us to Paris of the 20s, complete with Le Jazz Hot and a fascination for African and Afro-American fashion. A trip to Harlem provided particular inspiration for Milhaud's jazz-infused Creation of the World, based on African folk mythology.
