Maddy & Sam Chassar-Hesketh
WINNER AT THE BBC PROMS JUNIOR COMPOSER OF THE YEAR AWARD 2019
`’Cycle of the Sun’ Written by Madeleine Chassar-Hesketh
To be performed live at the BBC, Maida Vale Studios, London, August 2019
“I wanted to write a piece that could be used as a meditative mandala to celebrate the ebb & flow of seasons – leaving the listener contemplating the cyclical nature of life”. Madeleine Chassar-Hesketh.
You can follow the sun through the seasons during the piece as follows…
Winter Solstice (0.00)
The Light of the Sun flickers into life again after the long winter
Life returns and the first flowers of Spring appear out of the frozen earth
Spring Equinox (1:50)
Day and Night are in perfect balance as the first day of spring arrives
Fertility and the potency of the life force reaches its peak
Summer Solstice (3.10)
Mother Earth is expansive and organic growth is rife
The Summer’s peak brings the harvest, the sun king dances in the warm evening shadows
Autumn Equinox (4.22)
Day and night are in perfect balance, nature’s harvest is complete
Nature prepares to rest and take shelter
NEW RELEASE SPRING 2019
Weeping Snow into Blossom
This work explores the vibrant energy of change.
The need to reconnect with nature and our true self.
It is a transition from the dark to the light. The shift from the old to the new.
The transformation from Winter to Spring.
To save our planet and live in harmony with the natural world – it is time to weep snow into blossom.
We do hope you enjoy our music, stone installations, art and poetry. It would be great to keep in touch.
Love and Light
Madeleine, Samuel, Elaine and Gaia. x
