Elliot Tillage without violence [World Premiere]
Xenakis A L’ile de Goree
Alex Groves Linear Construction (No. 5)

The Riot Ensemble joins Voices Unwrapped with a spell-binding, subversive programme of hidden voices.

All the works are tied to the voice in intimate ways: a meditation on a Bach Chorale by Sofia Gubaidulina, Anna Clyne’s melodic ‘creation upon a sound space’ which weaves in, out and around the audience, and a secret text sung to themselves by a violinist.

A temporarily ‘lost’ piece by Rufus Isabel Eliot is given its long-delayed world premiere. Anchoring the concert – in his centenary year – is one of Xenakis’ masterworks: A L’ile de Goree for harpsichord and ensemble featuring soloist Gośka Isphording.

Musicologist Monika Żyła discusses Xenakis’ piece A L’ile de Goree:

Date & start time:Wed 16 Mar – 8.30pm
