Tue 4 Feb , 7:30 pm| £10
Carlo Gesualdo – Madrigals from Books V and VI
Christopher Fox – Canti del carcere (World premiere)
Durham Cathedral Chapter House
Expressively extreme, technically adventurous and vocally virtuosic, Carlo Gesualdo’s last two books of madrigals are astonishing even to modern ears in their shocking harmonic language, disorientating juxtapositions of mood and intense emotional impact. EXAUDI perform this avant-garde renaissance music alongside two new works: Christopher Fox’s settings of Gramsci’s powerful Prison Notebooks, and another piece selected from MUSICON’s anniversary call-for-scores, to be announced.
Part of the MUSICON concert series and Durham Vocal Festival
Dr James Weeks, director of EXAUDI will give a pre-concert talk at 18.45
Tickets £10, students £4, under 18s £1, available from Durham World Heritage Site Visitor Center, Owengate, or online via the link below.
