Music of Today: Ana Sokolović
Adam Hickox – conductor
Sokolović Jeu des Portraits (UK premiere)
Sokolović Ciaccona (UK premiere)
Discover the music of composer Ana Sokolović in this free early evening concert from members of the Philharmonia Orchestra.
Born in Serbia and based in Quebec, Sokolović is a major voice in Canadian contemporary music. She is a prolific composer for the concert hall, the opera house, theatre and film. Her music is full of joy, colour and imagination.
In the four contrasting movements of Jeu des Portraits Sokolović pays homage to four Canadian composers of the 20th century. Ciaccona, dedicated to her parents, is a thrilling display of virtuosity, rooted in the glittering, asymmetrical rhythms of the Balkans.
In Vespertine, by fellow-Canadian Jocelyn Morlock, flutes and harp conjure up a mysterious twilight world of night-blossoming plants and nocturnal creatures.
