Elisenda FabregasAntipodes: Having the feet opposite. Anti- against, opposite +opus, pod-foot”If you dig a hole straight down through the Earth, you’ll end up in New Zealand”. That was one of Spanish flautist Roberto Álvarez’s favourite childhood thoughts. Of course, that would bring many questions to the toddler’s mind:Do people at the Antipodes walk with their feet in the air and speak backwards?
Do their trees grow with their branches downwards?This recital is the perfect chance to compare how different or how similar is the antipodal music for the flute. Roberto Álvarez and pianist Shane Thio explore the repertoire by Spanish composers Elisenda Fábregas and Salvador Brotons, and Kiwis Gareth Farr and Anthony Ritchie.
