ACFNY Double Bill: Aki Onda and Demi Broxa

Aki Onda, composer/performer/visual artist/curator

Demi Broxa:
Jakob Schneidewind, bass/electronics
Agnes Hvizdalek, vocals

Aki Onda: Cassette Memories (Morocco 1988 and 2010)
Demi Broxa: Vocals, Electronics, and Bass

Demi Broxa (Jakob Schneidewind, bass/electronics and Agnes Hvizdalek, vocals) from Vienna combines electronic soundscapes with pure vocal sounds, and minimalistic musical structures with organic improvisations. Using only voice, bass and electronics they create fascinating abstract songs that are both direct and complex. Operating between the poles of electronic and acoustic, they create hypnotic club music combined with bizarre sound events.

Particularly known for his "Cassette Memories" -- works compiled from a "sound diary" of field-recordings collected by using the cassette Walkman over the span of the last quarter-century, Aki Onda creates compositions, performances, and visual artwork from those sound memories. For this performance, Onda plays cassette tapes he recorded during his travels to Morocco in 1988 and 2010.

Onda often performs in interdisciplinary fields and has collaborated with filmmakers, visual artists, and choreographers, including Ken Jacobs, Michael Snow, Raha Raissnia, Akio Suzuki, and Takao Kawaguchi. His work has been presented by numerous institutions such as MoMA, The Kitchen, documenta 14, Pompidou Center, Louvre Museum, Palais de Tokyo, Bozar, and many others.

Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir
Greg Morris, conductor, piano

Augusta Hebbert, soprano
Michael Hickman, baritone
Brendan Charleson, actor

Vaughan Williams: Dona Nobis Pacem
C Hubert Parry: My Soul There Is A Country
George Butterworth: A Shropshire Lad

The centrepiece of Collegium Musicum of London's summer concert, commemorating the end of World War One, is Vaughan Williams' impassioned plea for peace Dona nobis pacem.

The composer wrote the cantata in 1936 amid fears that a new global conflict was looming. It takes the form of six movements, with the poetry of Walt Whitman - as well as passages from both the Mass and the Bible - providing the text. The phrase Dona nobis pacem ('Give us peace') punctuates the entire work.

Soloists Augusta Hebbert (soprano) and Michael Hickman (baritone) will appear alongside actor Brendan Charleson, in an evening of choral music and readings to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice in 1918.

By coincidence, the same year saw the death of C Hubert Parry, whose visionary work My Soul, There Is A Country, from the Songs of Farewell cycle, will feature in the programme.

Also included in the concert is the work of one of England's most popular early-20th-century composers, George Butterworth, whose short life was curtailed by a sniper's bullet on the Somme in 1916. His rhapsodic setting of A E Housman's exquisite collection of verses A Shropshire Lad will be performed by Michael Hickman, accompanied by Andrew Tait on piano.

With a sprinkling of popular songs from the era, alongside heartrending dispatches from the trenches, Dona nobis pacem promises to be a poignant and fitting tribute to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Great War.

CML, under the expert direction of conductor Greg Morris, is one of the capital's leading chamber choirs. After its performance of Monteverdi's Vespers in 2017, the ensemble was described by music critic Roger Scruton as having 'set a benchmark' for the work.

Aldeburgh Festival

Aldeburgh Festival 2018 celebrates Britten and America. It also reflects 1948 - the remarkable period in post-war British history when the festival began and when so much of what we now regard to be the backbone of our cultural life was launched. In his centenary the music of Bernstein plays a significant part in the festival. Britten and Bernstein: composers, pianists, conductors, programme planners, educators, and major media figures were towering creative leaders, and are linked but rarely met each other. They sailed against prevailing winds and were celebrated and revered everywhere, and here they can be heard side by side with many connections that resonate across the festival. These links include Peter Grimes, W H Auden, Revd Walter Hussey and their composing friend Aaron Copland.
