RESONANCE: CHAMBER LANDSCAPES

Friday 11 March – Monday 14 March 2022

Adelaide Festival Concert Series curated by Erin Helyard

Since we saw him rising from the pit playing a candle-lit chamber organ in Barrie Kosky’s Saul (2017), Erin Helyard has been an Adelaide Festival denizen and we are thrilled to have him at the helm of 2022’s Chamber Landscapes long weekend. As Artistic Director of Pinchgut Opera, Erin is probably the only musician in the country that commands deep respect as a scholar, conductor and curator while simultaneously being dubbed 'Australia’s most engaging soloist', and he wears all his hats brilliantly in this eclectic treasury of concerts at UKARIA.

His chosen theme is Resonance. Of course it’s the physical property by which instruments sound and listeners hear, but, individually and as a set, the concerts explore other senses of the word, including, as Erin puts it: "the delicate influences that echo between musicians, amongst cultures, and across generations."

A stellar, all-Australian crew will present exquisite and stimulating music from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries in a resonant and restorative blend of the known and the unknown.

Catch crack soloists from Sydney’s groundbreaking Pinchgut Opera performing sacred music by Monteverdi and Handel’s mini-opera Acis and Galatea; extraordinary young Adelaide cellist James Morley, unaccompanied; Hannah Lane, one of the world’s finest baroque harpists; the ASQ with the much-loved Ravel and Debussy quartets; and the phenomenal Stephanie McCallum (who adds her two hands to Erin’s at the rare and beautiful 1853 Érard piano, which he’s bringing with him as oversized luggage from Sydney). There are fantastical, hilarious and deeply reflective works for wind quintet by Stravinsky, Ligeti and Elliott Gyger, and, for a unique and unmissable finale, a mind-expanding afternoon of Tibetan songs by world-renowned singer/composer Tenzin Choegyal and long-time Brisbane collaborators Camerata.

Nine brilliantly conceived programs to set the wild echoes flying around Womma Mu Kurta (Mount Barker Summit) and the corners of your mind.
