Marlborough Music Society - Les Bons Vivants


Chamber music with 'joie de vivre' is the theme of 'Les Bons Vivants', showcasing three musicians from the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Amandine Guerin (violin), Anthony Ferner (flute), Helen Webby (harp).

France meets musicians from the Antipodes in this program:Saint-Saëns' Fantaisie for Violin and Harp takes us in to the evocative world of French Romantic music, and we journey back in time to the court of Louis XV with Jean-Marie Leclair's Triosonata in D.  NZ composer Lissa Meridan lives in Paris, and will write a short piece for solo harp for this program, and Christchurch composer Alex van den Broek will write a trio for flute, violin & harp.

English composer Eugène Goosens lived for much of his life in Australia, and we perform his luscious Suite for Flute, Violin & Harp. African pygmy music meets classical flute & harp in Rain Forest, by NZ's dearly loved and recently passed composer Jack Body. Finally, back to France with Fauré's Après un Rêve (after a dream) and the Spanish flavor of Jacques Ibert's Deux Interludes.  Bon voyage!
