  • Kafka
    scraps from Kafka s letters and diaries and the resulting cycle of forty songs ranging in length from four minutes to twelve seconds runs the gamut of all the moods in Kafka s monochrome world But that s just the words and music when your director is a video artist as resourceful and inventive as Netia Jones and when your soprano has the charisma and versatility of Claire Booth you get a very heady brew Jones believes that although this work has no story it does have a structure and she has realised this with compelling force presiding with her laptop at one side of the stage while violinist Peter Manning conjures microcosms at the other with Booth hurling herself around the space between in bursts of mime and dance That space may be empty but it s filled with the most intense drama as Jones s light show interacts with voice body and violin Sometimes Booth seems to be floating in a sea of flowing calligraphy sometimes she s wrapped in delicately rustling foliage or pinioned by hard shafts of light she s by turns comic or tragic hero or victim as directed by Kurtag Kafka whim Financial Times What is Kafka Fragments supposed to mean The brief sentences from Kafka offer no narrative no personality that can be pinned down and Kurtág s music rarely lingers long enough for the listener to grasp its meaning before the sounds evaporate into the air This is a song cycle that demands a concentrated audience as its series of intense unrelated images flashes past Perhaps that is why Netia Jones director of the mixed media partnership Lightmap wanted to visualise the work in terms of light and image projections The stage is basically in darkness and for each song projections take

  • Webern
    from the time and location of each composition In this concert the seismic perceptual shift created by Schoenberg Berg and Webern in Vienna was reflected in the journey from Weberns early Lieder to the starkly atonal Three Traditional Rhymes and through the visual references from the Secessionist artists the Wiener Werkstatte and the simultaneous transformation of design and Oskar Kokoschka who created one of the most iconic images of Webern

  • Illuminations
    Les illuminations Britten s settings of poetry by Rimbaud with specially commissioned visuals by video artist Netia Jones There was something about the combination of Jones s glistening imagery Britten s vivid music and Rimbaud s strange proto surrealist poetry that really worked her ghostly figures and sinister fairground carousels seemed entirely in keeping with the song cycle s decadent beauty The intense sharply defined playing from the Scottish Ensemble
