The second concert in SCA’s 2018 Festival is of music inspired by visual art performed by the West Country’s leading wind ensemble Roaring Fork wind quintet in the wonderful space of the RWA Winterstoke Gallery. The group takes its name from music by American composer Eric Ewazen inspired by a visit to the Roaring Fork Falls in North Carolina. It is a key work in the quintet’s repertoire and shares the same qualities that they display in their playing: freshness, dynamism and accessibility.

Concert 1: CONTEMPORARY ART SONG
 
Matthew Clark (baritone)
Jolyon Laycock (Tenor)
James D’Angelo & Philip Blandford (piano)
Matthew Heyse-Moore (clarinet)

SCA’s 2018 festival kicks off with a recital of contemporary art song featuring baritone Matthew Clark. James D’Angelo is accompanist in his own settings of the meditational poetry of Thomas Merton. Philip Blandford is the accompanist in Sulyen Caradon’s settings of translations of Russian poetry portraying an environment poisoned by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Clark and Blandford are joined by tenor Jolyon Laycock in songs that capture the ecstatic response of the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins to the wild natural scenery of places such as Inversnaid Falls. On a lighter note songs by Peter Nickol (pictured) & Richard Pond are settings of James Turner, Veronica Gosling and W.H. Auden. Clarinettist Matthew Heyse-Moore is the accompanist in settings by Clement Jewitt of his own verses.
