Homestead Series 3 – Rampsbeck Homestead
NECOM’s Homestead Series offers a rare chance to immerse yourself in a magical combination of fine chamber music and local history.
An outstanding example of a contemporary homestead built in 2016 by the Evans family on the original house site of the Rampsbeck homestead in Wongwibinda. Designed by regional architect
Alexandra Murray the house was built to capture the sun in winter through its passive solar design and the views to the north west.
In keeping with the contemporary setting this concert will feature the Armidale Electric Orchestra presenting works by the Danish String Quartet from their critically acclaimed Wood Works album.
This collection of music is a musical journey through traditional Scandinavian folk songs and dances with a twist. The rhythmic drive and intensity of the music is enhanced with electric string effects that give a modern edge whilst preserving the delicate balance and beauty of the harmonic lines. Something completely different and yet totally mesmerising – a concert not to be missed.
ARTISTS: The Armidale Electric Orchestra; Robert van Gend Violin; Sam Russell Violin; Laura Curotta Viola; Robert Jackson Cello
