intro
ARGONAUT
ARGONAUT
BIFEM’s resident roster of virtuosi returns in 2015, presenting
across the weekend in various guises, including two major works
led by New York conductor Eric Dudley in his BIFEM debut.
Fanfare for a new theatre (1964)
Igor STRAVINSKY
7.20 PM FRIDAY 4 SEPTEMBER
ULUMBARRA THEATRE FOYER
FREE
Originally composed as part of the opening ceremony for the New
York State Theater at the Lincoln Center, Stravinsky’s serial work lasts
only 40 seconds but it still makes a striking impact some 51 years on.
2015 sees BIFEM and Argonaut’s first appearance at the brand-new
Ulumbarra Theatre, warranting the inclusion of a major miniature
work by one of the most significant figures in modern music.
ARGONAUT SOLOISTS (BENDIGO)
Tristram WILLIAMS and Callum G’FROERER, Trumpets
Maudite soit
la guerre
sur Incises (1996–98)
Pierre BOULEZ
Dedicated to the Swiss conductor, patron and impresario, Paul
Sacher, on the occasion of his 90th birthday, the Australian premiere
of this Grawemeyer Award-winning work is presented by Argonaut
during the 90th year of the composer. Although a divisive musical
identity, Boulez is an undeniable musical force. The rigour and focus
he demands of others is applied to his own work,
which is widely recognised as being in a constant state of revision.
sur Incises is a milestone in timbre, rhythm and gestural exploration
from the great French composer and conductor.
Eric Dudley’s appearance is supported by Joan and Barry Miskin.
sur Incises is supported by the Robert Salzer Foundation.
Maudite soit la guerre
–
A Film Music War Requiem (2014)
Olga NEUWIRTH
One of the first anti-war films in history, Maudite soit la guerre (War is
Hell) was made in 1914, shortly before the outbreak of the First World
War. Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth composed the music for this
silent movie by the Belgian director, Alfred Machin, under commission
from Ensemble 2e2m, who premiered the work in Paris in November
2014. This Australian-debut performance by Argonaut is a chance to
hear an important composer rarely performed in our region.

Superimpose Cycle for jazz quartet
and electronics (2009–11)
Alexander SCHUBERT
Kirvis (2002)
1. Superimpose
2. Night of the Living Dead
3. Infinite Jest
4. Sugar Maths and Whips
With his remarkable ‘jazz quartet’ cycle, the work of Hamburg
composer Alexander Schubert is heard for the first time in Australia.
Fashioned around broad quasi-citations, Schubert avoids all trappings
of cliché and pastiche through superb craft and an ear for wit and
whimsy. That the Superimpose Cycle is a quartet for seven players
highlights the playfulness of this multi-award-winning composer.

Joshua HYDE, Saxophone
Winnie HUANG, Violin

Stefano GERVASONI
Four strings, four composers, four quartets. This Argonaut Quartet
recital brings second insight to the sound worlds of Christophe
Bertrand and Kimmo Kuokkala, composers featured by our 2015
international guest ensembles. Also featured is the sublime second
quartet of Stefano Gervasoni, whose music will be heard for the first
time in Australia, and a world premiere and BIFEM debut from
New Zealand composer Dylan Lardelli.

Mapping, An Inlay was composed with funding from Creative New Zealand.
SOUNDTRACKS
4x4x4 will also feature for eight audience members a world-first
contemporary art intervention by St Martins: Soundtracks. During
the Bertrand quartet, this group will experience a live commentary
by young artists aged 8–12 delivered to them in the auditorium via
headphones. Soundtracks is designed to augment the audience
experience by giving an insight into the perspective of children:
poignant, authentic and at times hilarious.
soundinitiative
2015 BIFEM proudly presents the Australian debut performances by
the young Parisian ensemble, soundinitiative, featuring its co-artistic
directors Joshua Hyde, Fabienne Séveillac and Gwenaëlle Rouger.
The Exhausted
9.00 PM FRIDAY 4 SEPTEMBER
CAPITAL THEATRE

The Exhausted (L’épuisé) (2015)
Bernhard LANG
The world premiere of a new long-form work by Austrian
composer Bernhard Lang has been co-commissioned by BIFEM,
soundinitiative and the Yon Siew Toh Conservatory of Music,
Singapore. The Exhausted (L’épuisé) takes its title from Gilles
Deleuze’s famous treatise on Samuel Beckett. Part-concert,
part-music theatre, The Exhausted meditates on Deleuze’s inquiry
into the nature of production and the intrinsic link between
decomposition, composition and the essence of individualism.
This is the first of two appearances by soundinitiative at 2015 BIFEM.

written over the last 40 years – amidst the delightful mayhem
of our youngest audience members and their chaperones.

components: Ablinger’s Book of Returns, built from seamlessly
connected 40-second cells, and Kuokkala’s mesmerising O.
This concert provides a rare opportunity to witness the vitality,
skill and insight required by an ensemble to create high-impact
music from raw compositional elements.

MUSIC REVIEWERS
WORKSHOP
Inspired by the Melbourne Film Festival’s Critics Campus, BIFEM
is initiating a mentor programme in 2015 to address the paucity of
informed critical culture around new music in Australia. Mentored
across the festival, five young critics will be published daily as part
of the RealTime-sponsored new music blog Partial Durations,
bringing multiple readings of BIFEM 2015 into the public sphere.
Keith GALLASCH and Matthew
LORENZON, Workshop Directors
Information and applications for the Music Reviewers Workshop
can be found at www.partialdurations.com
Music Reviewers Workshop is supported by the Australian Government through the
Australia Council for the Arts, and with the co-operation of RealTime and Partial Durations.

you really are an explorer!

Welcome to the third edition of the Bendigo International Festival
of Exploratory Music where no fewer than 62 musicians perform
the works of 61 composers across the first weekend of September.
2015BIFEM features many world premieres of which Bernhard Lang
and Wojtek Blecharz were commissioned from the 2014BIFEM box
office. In a very direct way, one year’s audience has become the
commissioner for the next.
BIFEM is delighted once again to have so much support from
our government, business, philanthropic, private and international
partners. A special welcome to the Sidney Myer Fund whose
significant contribution to 2015–16 is providing core stability as
BIFEM continues to evolve.
Argonaut welcomes Eric Dudley in his BIFEM debut conducting
major works by Neuwirth and Boulez. BIFEM is very proud to
present the first Australian performances by the Parisian ensemble
soundinitiative and Helsinki’s defunensemble. It is the year of
lowercase runtogethernames it would seem.
Our community music-making performance of Daniel D’Adamo’s
…á Reims promises to tap into the rich, deep vein of brass culture
in and around Bendigo. Our popular cushion concert, performance
lectures, composer colloquium and solo recitals return as well as the
introduction of a dedicated electronic music space, Sound Gallery.
A new creation from The Amplified Elephants will be a highlight in
a festival of highlights!
We’ve formalised a Festival Club with our Hotel Partner The Schaller
Studio, in response to the need for audience and artists to have a
context in which to mingle and meet. And ticket passes: you asked,
so we have delivered.
2015BIFEM offers audiences a unique sonic journey where virtuosity
and innovation are a given. I look forward to sharing it with you all.
See you in Bendigo!
