György Ligeti – Aventures and Nouvelles Aventures
Nicholas Kok conductor
Gillian Keith soprano
Jessica Gillingwater mezzo soprano
Alexander Robin Baker baritone
In the coming weeks we will be releasing new films from Psappha’s live performances archive.
Our next YouTube Premier is György Ligeti’s Aventures & Nouvelles Aventures – both touching and comic, the three singers on stage are three people alone in their little universe, unaware of their accompanying instrumentalists and unaware of their audience: they lack the confident reciprocity of performers within a shared tradition, and in that lack – which is actualised in a different way by their lack of words – they place themselves at a moment of crisis in western musical culture.
This Live performance was filmed at the Stoller Hall on 27th September 2018.
Join us at 20:30 BST to chat with the soloists and the musicians and to watch the premier of this new film together. Here’s the link: https://youtu.be/Z7hiwapw9t8
See you on Monday!
