Symmetry Duo presents World Premier of Paul Patterson's "Cantonese Image" (World Harp Congress)
July 07, 2017
The Cantonese Images was commissioned by the Symmetry Harp Duo for the World Harp Congress with funds from the Tanza Trust. It consists of three movements.
The piece combines various traditional Cantonese melodies and harmony mixed with contemporary harp techniques. Each movement is inspired by a Cantonese children song which are very meaningful to the harpist Ching Man Ho and Lok Man Ho when they were young.
Duo Reine presents to you "Let them eat cake!" (In association with Le French May)
May 20, 2017
A musical afternoon themed around the life of the maligned Marie-Antoinette. Although badly educated, music was her passion. Not only could she read music, but she could sing and play the clavichord. The harp was her favorite instrument and her teacher was Philippe Joseph Hinner. Marie Antoinette would often play lullabies on the harp to soothe her son. Her patronage also brought many celebrated musicians to the French court. Through a selection of 18th-century songs-including two composed by the queen herself-- we hope to illuminate different aspects of her life neglected in popular culture, and tell a story of a gifted music-lover, as well as a devoted sister and mother.
