House Concert - John Couch
The program will be an international journey through four continents; South America, North America, Europe and Australasia. Opening with the fantastic melodies and rhythms of José Merlin’s Suite del Recuerdo (Suite of Memories). Two new works will be played, both of which were commissioned at the last Taranakai Classical Guitar Summer School in New Zealand. First Tua Marina by the NZ composer Bruce Paine with funding help from Creative New Zealand. Tua Marina is Paine’s interpretation of the landscape of New Zealand captured in four movements. Second Whenua o Te Manu (Land of the Birds) by the English composer Vincent Lindsey-Clark. Whenua o Te Manu captures the sounds and characteristic of iconic New Zealand birds.
Hosts Bill and Libby want to offer opportunities for Canberra audiences to share their passion for the classical guitar, its varied and interesting repertoire and for the very high level of talent present in the region.
