OVERVIEW

A contemporary of Couperin, Rebel wrote Le Cahos, or Chaos, in the late 1730s. Written as a standalone piece, he later appended it as an prologue to his symphony ‘Les Élémens’. Of this introductory section, he wrote

The introduction to this Symphony was drawn from nature: it was Chaos itself, that confusion which reigned among the Elements before the moment when, subject to immutable laws, they assumed their prescribed places within the natural order.

Lost Things – for solo flute – is taken from a music theatre piece by Samantha Fernando titled The Journey Between Us. Inspired by short stories, Fernando’s work ‘examines the interactions that occur within relationships and the complex emotions we experience when communication breaks down’.

The concert concludes with Copland’s Appalachian Spring – in its original chamber ensemble scoring.
