About Wattleseed Ensemble ‘HOME’ Daylesford
A thought-provoking concert for gut string trio exploring the idea of home.
HOME spans repertoire from the medieval to the present, crossing from classical to traditional folk music.
Home is a concept that is inextricably tied to being human, and can mean many different things to different people. Throughout the program, we will explore a religious home through music by Hildegard of Bingen and JS Bach; a national home through traditional folk music; and finally extend this to the idea of our planet and environment being home, through a new work by composer Matt Laing, commissioned especially for this tour, called From Home. This stunning work focuses on the place Matt considers his home, the Fleurieu Peninsula just south of Adelaide, and describes its change over time. From musical responses to the ancient granite of the cliffs, to a young bird struggling into the wind, From Home reflects on the past, look forward into the future, and capture the moment of choice we have now.
