Aberystwyth Musicfest: Aberystwyth

26 July 2021 | 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Beethoven Bartók Now: Night Music.
Featuring a new work by Aaron Parker: tuóretu

This specially commissioned digital event will be available online, to view from the comfort of your own home, or you can join us at Aberystwyth Arts Centre for a special, one-off screening.

This imaginatively constructed concert takes the form of an hour-long tapestry of music, interspersing Aaron Parker’s own reflections with movements from Beethoven’s Quartet, op. 130 and Bartók’s Quartet no. 5.

Lonely melodies supported by eerie dissonances punctuated with sounds of nature characterise Bartók’s ‘night music’ style. Beethoven’s op. 130, the second of the late Quartets, contains an extraordinary palette of darkness and light in six remarkable movements. The young British composer Aaron Parker has written a spell-binding new work, tuóretu, featuring references to Bartok’s ‘night music’, with a depth of harmonic expression found so richly in Beethoven’s Quartet no. 13.
