Musicon NEW MUSIC focus – 1

Sat 23 Feb , 7:30 pm

| £10

The Ives Ensemble return to Durham with three concerts of music from the last 50 years, and focussing on pieces by Alvin Lucier and Aldo Clementi – two composers whose enigmatic works stand out for their inventiveness and a purity of artistic vision.

Rik Andriessen – flute
Hans Petra – clarinet
John Snijders – piano
Josje ter Haar – violin
Job ter Haar – cello

Alvin Lucier – In Memoriam Jon Higgins
Aldo Clementi – Dedica
Joanna Baillie – Artificial Environments No.1 to 5
James Tenney – Spectrum 7
Christian Winther-Christensen – Nachtmusik

This first concert includes some breathtaking microtonal works by Tenney and Lucier, alongside a canonic masterpiece by Clementi, Baillie’s innovative reimagining of environmental sounds in an instrumental fabric, and Winther-Cristensen’s refreshing textural flair to make the sounds of the night visible.

The Ives Ensemble director and pianist, John Snijders, will give a pre-festival talk n the Music Department Lecture Room at 18.00 on Saturday 23rd February.

Individual concert tickets: £10, students £4, under-18s free, available online from the link below, or on the door.
