UKARIA 24 – TELEMANN’S RAINBOW

Sunday 8 September 2019  |  11:30AM

UKARIA 24 – CURATED BY DIANA DOHERTY

TELEMANN'S RAINBOW

A journey through tonalities, across an arc of shifting hues.

Diana Doherty performs Telemann’s twelve solo Fantasias as Iain Grandage reads extracts from composers and musicologists on the characteristics of keys and their associations with colours. Sydney-based visual artist Bernadette Trela, whose acrylic paintings have been described as ‘powerfully evocative of coastal Australia’, creates unique responses to Telemann’s various tonalities, reflected across twelve canvases unveiled after each performance.

‘Working on these Fantasias, I found myself wondering what made Telemann think of a certain character for a certain key. Did he perhaps see music in colours, as many famous synaesthete composers and performance have? And if I were to play all twelve in a row, what kind of rainbow or emotional journey would be the result? It was a challenge I could not resist.’

– Diana Doherty

Followed by a two-course lunch (separate booking required).
