Iannis Xenakis – Psappha


We close the season with a celebration of Iannis Xenakis, culminating in the work that gave the ensemble its name. ‘Psappha' is one of the defining solo percussion works of the 20th century, and this is a not-to-be-missed performance. Other works on the programme include Xenakis’ “Plektò” for Psappha’s core ensemble, Ailís Ní Ríain’s haunting “The Last Time I Died”, and the RNCM Gold Medal winning composition 2022, Phoenix Rousiamanis’ “song for a sleepless wolf child”.
