Place: Albert Long Hall, Istanbul
2014 marks the 20th anniversary of composer Juliana Hodkinson’s collaboration with some of the core musicians of SCENATET, and several of the works in this concert were written specially for the ensemble’s members. Using toys, feathers, leaves, glass, porcelain and all manner of objects alongside their classical instruments, Juliana Hodkinson’s chamber works encourage the musicians to pursue a theatre of sounds, bringing together heterogeneous elements in moments of alternating contrast and fusion.
The concert’s first half includes mainly acoustic works from 1999 onwards, including Why linger you trembling in your shell?, When the wind blows, Harriet’s song, and sagte er, dachte ich. The second half presents Hodkinson’s new electro-acoustic instrumental-theatre work Angel View, fresh from its premiere at MaerzMusik in Berlin in March 2014.
