Event Details

The neo-expressionism of Wolfgang Rihm and Elliott Carter’s crystalline lyricism set this concert on a trajectory which explores new music chamber repertoire in an acoustic setting and with electronics. The trajectory is further outlined by four composers of the younger generation who represent, in these works, dramatically varied sounds worlds: complexity, minimalism, timbral exploration and ritualised and re-interpreted folk music. Rosalind Page’s Courbe dominante takes inspiration from Kandinsky, Schoenberg and sound sources from planetary origins (Saturn) which she has transformed into a series of Baroque-referenced dance movements. Polish composer, Hanna Kulenty, is represented by her ‘European trance music’ which uses digital delay. Giorgio Colombo Taccani’s Luz, written for Laura and Thomas Jones, reflects refined timbral and harmonic beauty. Diego Luzuriaga is becoming well-known for his lively and passionate music which takes elements of Ecuadorean–Andean folk music as its point of departure. Luzuriaga’s Double Duo has lent its name to this concert as the four instrumental performers are two married couples.
