Leading Australian guitarist Stefan Gregory re-imagines the composer's 7th Symphony as a solo live score to accompany Legs On The Wall's latest creation performed as part of the Sydney Festival 2013 program.
Directed by Patrick Nolan, the collaboration amplifies the jazz-like connection between physical performance, music and video. One can overtake the other at any moment in this intuitive and exciting celebration of Beethoven's melodic brilliance.
Performers Craig Bary, Matt Cornell Amy Macpherson and Joshua Thomson are each highlighted in the four movements, enriched by video artist Andrew Wholley's imagery.
Symphony premiered at NORPA in Lismore as part of their 2012 season through the support of NORPA's creative development program, Generator.
