For their final concert for 2011 Kegelstatt Ensemble turn to the world of the Moulin Rouge, with Burlesque a celebration of early twentieth-century French decadence. This is truly music that houses both the sacred and the profane, written by composers who knew the bittersweet realities of life, nature and love.
This program traverses the bird-call obsession of Olivier Messiaen, the rich delicacy of Claude Debussy, the pagan rituals of André Jolivet and many other shades of laughter and tears in between. Finally, it also showcases the wonderful solo capabilities of Kegelstatt’s resident wind players: Alexandra Castle, flute, Renae Stavely, oboe, Stephanie Wake-Dyster, clarinet, joined by Leigh Harrold, piano.
Now in its sixth year of concerts, the Kegelstatt Ensemble is comprised of gifted and passionate young musicians who work together joyfully and fruitfully in bringing great chamber music to life. They take their name from the trio by Mozart nicknamed “Kegelstatt”, skittle alley, because it was composed after a game of skittles.
