On the Flipside: An antipodal concert – an advertisement

Antipodes: Having the feet opposite.
Anti: against, opposite+opus; pod: foot.

As a child living on the other side of the world, flautist Roberto Álvarez often wondered, ‘if you dig a hole straight down through the Earth, will you end up in New Zealand?’

And since New Zealand is on the other side of the world, do people walk with their feet in the air? Do they speak backwards? Do trees grow upside down too, starting from the leaves and ending with their roots in the air?

How then, do people play music and write for the flute? In this recital, Roberto Álvarez and pianist Shane Thio explore the repertoire by Spanish composers Elisenda Fábregas and Salvador Brotons, and Kiwis Gareth Farr and Anthony Ritchie.

Come find out, and compare how different or how similar flute music is on the flipside! Happening next tuesday, 23rd September 2014, at the Esplanade Recital Studio. Get your tickets from Sistic now! Tickets are priced at $30 each.
