Easter Music Film Festival on Waiheke

Media Release
Openair Cinema presents Easter Music Film Festival on Waiheke Island
Waiheke, 11 March 2005

Denise and Urs Bauer, the organizers of the first big screen outdoor theatre in New Zealand, are planning an Easter session at Onetangi Road Vineyard. ''We were thinking of coming back to the island after the Viaduct showings, but didn't wanted to jeopardize David Paquette's Jazz Festival'', says Urs Bauer. "Since it has been cancelled for this year, we're happy to step in with some great Music Films."

The Festival, which will again be held at Onetangi Road Vineyard, home of the islands Baroona Brewery, shoots off on Thursday, 24 March, with 'Brassed Off'. For Friday, the Cuban Jazz Classic 'Buena Vista Social Club' will be screened and on Saturday 'Ray' - the award winning film of the live of Ray Charles, not only a great musician, but also a great character in modern music history, is on. On Easter Sunday the party is set with 'The Festival Express' - old footage newly released of Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead or the Band and on Monday, the Festival concludes with 'School of Rock' - which may inspires students of the Orchestra of the local Primary School. A proportion of ticket sales for this show will be donated to the schools Orchestra.

Ticket prices for the Waiheke screenings are: Adults ($12), Senior Citizen / Students with ID ($10), Kids under 12 ($7). They can be bought at Onetangi Road Vineyard, Family Barrow Oneroa and at the door (cash only), which opens at 7pm. Movie start at 8pm (after sunset). Tickets are not allocated to a certain night, so make sure, you're there well before the screening starts because of limited space.

Bring your own rugs, cushions, deck chairs and sleeping bags. Onetangi Road Vineyard will be firing up the BBQ with Ostrich Sausages plus all the great Cinema snacks, wine, Baroona beer, soft-drinks and coffee are on offer. No BYO alcohol is allowed.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
