Orlando Gibbons’ Cries of London and Clement Janequin’s Cris de Paris are among the first examples of urban street culture making its way into art music. It has long been a dream of the Song Company to bring this tradition into the modern world, and our Festival collaboration allows us to do just that! Kathmandu, Auckland and Wellington will join London and Paris, as some of New Zealand’s hottest composers get in on the act, along with the New Zealand String Quartet and the Ying Quartet, for tonight’s world premieres. Brahms’ sublime sextet in G, with soaring melodies and rich harmonies (and the encoded name of his love Agathe), brings the festival to a rousing conclusion.
