Brodsky Quartet (uk) and Katie Noonan with Love and Fury

05/05/2016 - 05/05/2016 Brodsky Quartet (uk) and Katie Noonan with Love and Fury

This unstoppable collision of colossal talent will provide audiences with a spine-tingling experience as they re-imagine the words of Australian poet Judith Wright. The album is currently being recorded in London and will be released in March. With Love and Fury will unleash a truly unique and remarkable Australian program with Katie picking some of her favourite contemporary Australian composers including Carl Vine, Elena Kats-Chernin, Richard Tognetti, Iain Grandage, Andrew Ford, David Hirschfelder, Paul Grabowsky, Paul Dean and John Rodgers in 9 especially commissioned pieces and one of Noonan’s own. The title ‘With Love and Fury’ reflects the typically poetic phrase that Wright used to sign off her correspondence. These new works will be performed for the first time and, in addition, Brodsky Quartet will also perform some of their own repertoire both alone and accompanied by Noonan, including songs by Elvis Costello, Björk and Katie herself.A magical performance is promised showcasing the sublime voice of our own acclaimed Katie Noonan collaborating with The UK’s Brodsky Quartet who are not only at the forefront of the International chamber music scene, but are also renowned for their rich and varied musical existence.
