Pelléas Ensemble perform ‘Kogelberg’ at the Stratford on Avon Music Festival 2016

The Pelléas Ensemble: Luba Tunnicliffe (Viola), Henry Roberts (Flute) and Oliver Wass (Harp), performed ‘Kogelberg’ at the Stratford on Avon Music Festival.

The music draws on the forming of the Kogelberg mountain range. The bass in the harp represents the slow flowing movement of the earth’s crust as the tectonic plates collided and folded to produce the beautiful landscape. The flute and viola create the energetic force that shaped the collision into different rock structures. Throughout this transformation the seas remained lit up by the sun reflecting the kaleidoscope of colours from the changing ripples.
