From Russia with Love
Glebe Justice Centre, 37 St Johns Rd, Glebe, NSW
‘From Russia With Love’ has Nexas team up with trumpeter Matthew Dempsey for a fresh take on Mussorgsky’s ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’. This famed aural tour of an art collection will be transformed in a never before heard version that combines elements of its original chamber music setting with the full orchestral grandeur famed by Ravel. Presented alongside this will be Glazunov’s masterful ‘Saxophone Quartet’. One of the most substantial works in the canon of the instrument, this romantic style work is dramatic and passionate with a grounding in Russian music traditions.
