Salvatore Sciarrino Carnaval UK Premiere
London-based vocal ensemble EXAUDI are among the stars of the European new music scene. Complemented by the vision and energy of the young Explore Ensemble – returning to hcmf// for their third consecutive year – they deliver the UK premiere of Salvatore Sciarrino’s Carnaval, a work in twelve movements written for five voices, solo piano and ensemble. One of the composer’s major recent statements, Carnaval is a collection of ‘concerted madrigals’ framing an extended movement for solo piano and ensemble, Rain Rooms. Sciarrino describes Carnaval as ‘a crowd of strange figures from which a final gathering of titles, reflections and portraits is distilled. An observatory. An intimate space for the imagination’.
Produced by hcmf// supported by Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants
This event will finish at approximately 8:30pm.
