17/04 5pm ASTRA concert 1916/2016
This concert re-assembles a program that made an outstanding impact in Astra’s 2015 season. It brings together two larger works offering highly individual perspectives on the centenary of World War I – from Russia in 1916 a wartime composition of idealistic scope, seeking to unite East and West in traditions of language and liturgy, and from Australia in 1999 another multi-lingual composition, creating a musical space for the secular voices of leading poets of the day who were direct witnesses to the event.
