MATTIAS LYSELL "Le Sculpteur Express"* ("Le Sculpteur Express" film score)
SIBELIUS String Quartet No. 4 in D minor, Op. 56 "Voces Intimae"
ANDREW FORD "Scherzo perpetuo"* ("Le Sculpteur Express" film score)
BEETHOVEN String Quartet No. 14 in C sharp minor, Op. 131
*Premiere, commissioned by Flinders Quartet
The film "Performance" featuring Beethoven’s Op. 131 brought this towering piece into focus for many first time chamber music fans. It gave us the idea of exploring music in film and how our emotions are more affected by what we hear, rather than what we see. "Le Sculpteur Express" is from the famous Corrick Collection at the National Film and Sound Archive. The audience will see this silent film twice during the concert, once with a score by Australia’s Andrew Ford and once with a score by Sweden’s Mattias Lysell. Add in the best know quartet by Sibelius, "Voces Intimae" and we’re ready for action.
