Hammer Tech

2024 Chamber Series

Apeiron goes Classical!


Our Mozart-style fortepiano doesn't get as much as playing time as our harpsichord, but Marie's Early Music training was heavily focused on the early piano and Classical-era music. We will also have Ben Hoadley joining us on Classical Bassoon, and will explore music by composers such as Edelmann, de Nebra, Michl, and others!


More information coming soon!

WHERE: Wesley Uniting Church, Forrest, ACT

WHEN: 18th August 2024, 4pm.

What is Apeiron?

 

We owe the concept of apeiron(ἀπείρων) to the ancient Greeks. Living so close to the elements, they experienced constant turmoil. Nothing was taken for granted – as states rose and fell, and war was constant, while plagues and natural disasters were frequent visitors.


Yet, like us, they experienced beauty and joy. It told them that no matter how fleeting a moment was, it must contain within it a spark of truth. Something that lasts beyond the flux of the everyday and transcends it. As their philosophers paced the agora, they argued over which elements composed this truth – was it fire? Water? Ideas? Man himself?
