KARIN SCHAUPP AND UM­BERTO CLERICI DUO

Noosa Life and Style - - THINGS TO DO -

BRING­ING to­gether two of Aus­tralia’s finest and most ex­pres­sive in­stru­men­tal­ists for its fi­nal 2017 con­cert, the Noosa Mu­sic So­ci­ety presents the crit­i­cally ac­claimed col­lab­o­ra­tion of Karin Schaupp (gui­tar) and Um­berto Clerici (cello) with a pro­gram ex­plor­ing song through­out the ages.

From gen­tle Span­ish lul­la­bies to fiery con­tem­po­rary works, from Schu­bert to De Falla, Clerici and Schaupp rein­vent beau­ti­ful melodies with lush ac­com­pa­ni­ments for the unique and in­tox­i­cat­ing com­bi­na­tion of cello and gui­tar.

How bet­ter to de­scribe a story, as an emo­tional jour­ney, than with songs?

Mu­sic can say and hide more than a sim­ple writ­ten text. This pro­gram uses song ar­range­ments to take the au­di­ence on a jour­ney through life, from child­hood to a re­flec­tion on death and all that comes in be­tween: love, jeal­ousy, fam­ily, ill­ness, joys and bat­tles.

The mu­sic will come from five cen­turies of mu­sic, from the Ital­ian Re­nais­sance to the present day.

From the sim­ple beauty of the naive Lul­la­bies by Brit­ten to the Jewish re­flec­tion on death with Ravel’s Kad­dish, all recon­ceived for cello and gui­tar.
