Music Concert; Pastoral

Composers by Ananda Sukarlan, Betty Beath, Jarrad Powell and Tony Prabowo
Text by Goenawan Mohamad

This concert offers a range of musical compositions by composers from Indonesia and abroad based upon poetic works of Goenawan Mohamad.  The poetry titled ”Pastoral” with musical composition by Tony Prabowo has been chosen as the title for the entire concert.  ”Pastoral” which will be performed this time by Momenta Quartet has been performed several times including at the Kuendouri-Classics, Tokyo Yamate Kyokai, Tokyo, Japan (2006), Graha Bhakti Budaya, Jakarta (2006), National Museum of Singapore (2007). Besides “Pastoral”, Tony also composed several other pieces, such as a composition for choir based on poems by Goenawan titled “Tentang Pantai” and “Doa Persembunyian”; while “Funeral Pyre”, Tony composed for vocals—to be sung by Nyak Ina Raseuki-with viola and pre-recorded tape.

There is also Ananda Sukarlan whose composition is based on four poems by Goenawan, including “Sajak untuk Bungbung” and “Perjalanan Malam”.  The four poems selected by Ananda tell of anxieties and produce hypnotic melodies. A composition by Betty Beath, composer and pianist from Australia, will also be presented.  One of the pieces by Beath to be performed is a composition based upon the poem, “Asmaradana”—about the heartache of Anjasmara when she must bid farewell to her lover, Damarwulan who is headed for battle.  The composition by Jarrad Powell, “Goro-Goro”, first created for the contemporary opera Kali will also be played in this concert.
