Art2day 7

  • 7 February — 31 March 2015 *on now

This annual celebration of work, now in its 7th year, never fails to impress. It showcases the talent and diversity of work from the city’s budding young artists in secondary schools across Plymouth.

All the work on display forms part of the students’ GCSE, A Level and Foundation qualifications: in order to produce the final work they have first researched a range of artists, and experimented with a variety of processes and techniques. Come and take a look at the result of sustained hard work and developing creative skills and talent emerging from art booms across Plymouth city.

Simon Ible, conductor
Laurie Ashworth, soprano

Joseph Haydn: Maria Teresa Mass

In this music we find Haydn’s choral writing at its very best with the variety, rhythmic energy and contrapuntal skill of a composer at the height of his powers.
Haydn named this mass after Maria Theresa of the Two Sicilies, empress consort of Francis II. It is also known as Theresienmesse Mass. It was premiered in September 1799 in Bergkirche near Eisenstadt, Austria, the estate of his patron Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy.

  • 16 March 2015 From 7pm

Keren Cytter creates films, video installations, and drawings, representing social realities through experimental modes of storytelling. Recalling amateur home movies and video diaries, the artist's films depict intensified scenes drawn from everyday life in which the overwhelmingly artificial nature of the situations portrayed is echoed by the very means of their production.

Song Recital: Sea Fever

  • 22 March 2015 From 4pm

Song Recital: Sea-Fever
Clare Presland, mezzo-soprano
Ashely Riches, baritone
Emma Abbate, piano

Songs of the Sea including the premiere of new songs by Paul K Joyce commissioned by Suzanne Sparrow and Peninsula Arts for the 2015 Words and Music Festival

Paul K Joyce :
“The words to Sea-Fever by John Masefield and The Shores of Amerikay (anon) have provided the inspiration for two original songs in this programme. Each gives a different perspective on the sea.

Sea-Fever revels in the physicality of being aboard an ocean-going craft. It is tinged with longing and a certain respect for the power of the waves.

The Shores of Amerikay is less about the sea itself and more about its ability to convey a reluctant émigré to a distant place. It too is full of longing but for what they must leave behind.
