STEP 1: HOW TO SET THE SCENE (11 NOV 2016)

Untitled-1

On Friday 11 November at St John’s Smith Square we enter the sound world of Beat Furrer’s FAMA. We asked composer Beat Furrer, who joins us on the night to conduct the sound masterpiece that is FAMA, to provide a selection of music that inspires him as a composer:

Allesandro scarlatti Aria “Mentre io godo in dolce oblio” (from “La Santissima Vergine”)

Franz Schubert Schwanengesang

George Frideric Handel Ariodante

Antonio Vivaldi Orlando

Giovanni Battista Pergolesi salve regina

Alban Berg Wozzeck

Beat also finds beauty and inspiration in:
– Vocal music of the Renaissance and Baroque period
– John Dowland
– Flamenco
– A compilation of vocal music from all over the world called “Le voix du monde”
