Morton Feldman's "Triadic Memories"
The Great Hall, King's College London
United Kingdom

Tickets: Free!
Luke Berryman

Triadic Memories is a vast single-movement work lasting approximately two hours. Like other works of the composer's final years, it's closely related to the aesthetics of Mark Rothko's paintings, and is characterised by stasis and extremely quiet dynamics. The unusual title refers partly to Feldman's attempt to evoke memory itself: listening to this piece is like flicking through an old photograph album. Its delicate, slowly-shifting harmonies reach toward an experience lost in time. It was perhaps this fragility that led the composer to describe the piece as 'the largest butterfly in captivity'.

Triadic Memories has only been performed a handful of times across the world, and the programme also features Karlheinz Stockhausen's evergreen Klavierstück IX.

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Brahms composed his Tragic Overture while on holiday in 1880, writing that 'I could not refuse my melancholy nature the satisfaction of composing an overture for a tragedy'. Whether or not Brahms had a particular tragedy in mind remains a mystery, but the Overture encompasses imposing, turbulent ideas, poignant lyricism and memorable rhythms. Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2 boasts one of his best-loved movements, the irresistibly romantic Larghetto, framed by an animated, intricate opening movement and a lively finale in the style of Polish folk-music. Beethoven’s expansive ‘Pastoral’ Symphony is a magnificent mixture of charm and innovation, brimming with evocative melodies which create a vivid impression of the countryside in all its majesty.
