Sophie Hutchings Performs at Sydney's Glebe Justice Centre...... “The only intimate performance venue in Sydney where you can relax on a lounge with your own BYO Plonk”…..
As part of the opening celebration as a not-for-profit organisation with a rights-based approach to community development Glebe Justice Centre are hosting a range of artists and community events over the week from Sunday 15th February. Sophie Hutchings will be performing with Strings Friday 20th Februray!
Compared with the likes of Michael Nyman, Max Richter, Dustin O'halloran, Nils Frahm and other like minded composers, Hutching's has prompted much critical praise worldwide, with MOJO Magazine declaring her work as 'stirring, vigorous, [and] grandly melodic". Hutchings debut album was listed in that magazine's Top 5 Independent releases and has continued to endure and impress since. Hutchings is subtly playful within the direct and emotive candour of her style, making for an open and surprising journey throughout. Balancing the beautiful fragility in her work with a deeper sense of urgency creates a striking charge to her performance with a compelling pulse that also encompasses a lightness of touch in parts making for many shades set within Hutchings' beguiling vision.
Her compositions move from disarmingly spare and elegant beginnings to curl out with a tingling edge, propelling its austerity into urgent and epic realms. Violin, cello, heighten the flight these pieces can take as well as dip and swell within the more dimly lit moods of gentler nuance, casting a particular spell across the range of feeling captured in Sophie's playing. Both unfussed and exquisite though constantly evolving....
