Pavel Ralev "On Repeat"

Fri 17 May 2024 7:00 pm
Ian Potter Recital Hall at The Hedberg

“…he is a poet of the guitar with an amazing and graceful technique - the  audience were spellbound.” - John Williams

Following the success of his Wigmore Hall debut for the Julian Bream Trust, Pavel Ralev returns to Australia for his second tour of the country in May 2024. 

Through his programme On Repeat Pavel explores the effects of repetition and drones on human emotion and the perception of time.

The music leads us through a wave of gradually dissolving material: dense harmonies by jazz guitarist Ant Law are followed by Bach’s second Violin Partita, culminating with the Chaconne - his longest solo instrumental movement, constructed of 64 variations on a four-bar theme.

Domeniconi’s Koyunbaba utilises a deeply resonating open C sharp minor tuning to envelop us in a meditative atmosphere with droning basses and repetitive middle eastern themes.

To finish, Pavel will perform his take on Steve Reich’s modern classic Electric Counterpoint - a joyful celebration of the guitar.
