Arvo PrtSumma6'Pteris VasksString Quartet No. 524'Johannes Fischercanons and sparrows10'Steve ReichDifferent TrainsFor string quartet and tape27'Music by Peteris Vasks and Arvo Prt is presented alongside Different Trains, Steve Reichs haunting comparison of the trains of his childhood and those used in the Holocaust.This remarkable concert is characterised by fascinating connections. At its heart is a truly post-modern quartet (2017) by composer Johannes Fischer. Diverse influences from that work radiate out into the whole concert. The opening pulsed birdsong soon encompasses virtuosic passage work and this in turn leads into repeated notes which bring to mind the world of Steve Reichs masterpiece Different Trains (also to be heard in the concert). Fischers work concludes by slowing into canonic references to Bachs Art of Fugue. We have referenced that obliquely by opening the programme with Arvo Parts Summa. Summa is also a suitable preparation for listening to the fifth quartet by Peteris Vasks one of the most substantial additions to the literature of the string quartet in recent times.There will be a pre-concert talk at 7pm in the Penarth Pier Pavilion Cinema.
