‘We walked in the meadows along the river,
and heard the distant
singing from the church across the river.
The mist had not entirely left the river bed,
and the colours, the running water,
and elm trees
were something that one would always remember.’
Charles Ives’ mysterious, beautiful Three Places in New England evokes the sound and soul of three landscapes from the composer’s homeland, here performed alongside a new film from award-winning Australian photographer and film-maker Jon Frank. Memento pairs Ives’ masterpiece with Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony – premièred in 1813 at a charity concert in aid of wounded soldiers returning from the Battle of Hanau – and Pierre Boulez’s haunting Mémoriale for flute and eight instruments.
