Music and Film at Concorde

August 24, 2016 in by mwhiteside


Event Details


The Concorde Hangar is the stunning setting for a concert in which visual images

join music to spectacular effect. Edgard Varèse’s ‘Déserts’ (1954) is a monumental

work which explores the inner deserts of the mind as well as of land and sea.

Varèse’s powerful music is accompanied by a film specially created by the visionary

American video artist Bill Viola. George Crumb’s mesmerisingly beautiful and

ritualistic ‘Vox Balaenae’, inspired by the singing of humpback whales, is followed

by Louis Andriessen’s hypnotic, super-dynamic ‘Workers Union’, with a brand new

film commissioned from Scottish film-makers Eggbox. In this exciting event Red

Note Advanced Academy brings senior students from The Paris Conservatoire,

Sibelius Academy Helsinki and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to work alongside

Red Note musicians.
