Join us for an evening of Classical music paired with the movement art of Eurythmy.
Inspired from their Carnegie Hall performance last spring, eurythmist Gabrielle Armenier and pianist Brigitte Armenier perform with violinist Florin Parvulescu of the San Francisco Symphony and cellist Andrew Hines of the Opera Australia Orchestra.
The program features Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 31, a masterpiece of motions and countermotions. Ysaye's Sonatas for Solo Violin No. 3 and 5 carves a dynamic space, before Brahms' Violin Sonata No. 3 sweeps us off into Romantic curves. The program concludes with Sydney-based composer Paul Stanhope's gorgeous Trio Dolcissimo Uscignolo, where light and the qualities of sound interplay in ever varying forms.
Eurythmy is an art of movement and of forms which sculpts the space around the moving human being. Performed to instrumental music, Tone Eurythmy is choreographed directly from the musical score - tones, intervals and keys translated into a language of moving, visible forms. With the creative laws of space and of non-linear time as working elements, eurythmists move between two centers of gravity: the human heart and the plane at infinity.
"Eurythmy produces a performing experience unlike many others; it lures you in to new shores, perhaps a bit like the song of the sirens once captured Odysseus. Armenier’s confident and graceful movements ignite at least curiosity in the discipline, exploring the many mysterious and somewhat inexplicable layers of sound, space, and movement with a new artistic potential."
