    Program

    The repertoire of prestigious vocal ensemble EXAUDI focuses on avant-garde composers and ‎often takes them beyond the conventional circuits of contemporary music. With Eight ‎Voices, Bryn Harrison works with chromatic pitch cycles creating complex repeated ‎sequences. In Linda Catlin Smith’s work Uncertain she explores the perception ‎that exists between two states: how can it not be day or night? The haunting piece by Jürg ‎Frey, shows subtle composition simplicity with a focus on each sound of the ensemble and ‎voices that morph with each other, coming together at different points in the work in ‎harmonic sections of unadulterated expression. Madrigali by Salvatore Sciarrino, ‎unveils a new sound ecology using a polyphony of minimal resources with six haikus by ‎Matsuo Bashō. The programme concludes with Corpi celesti by Lorenzo Pagliei, ‎and a brief choral piece by Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff in Cambridge, which ‎uses a sequence of 16 chords and three solitary pitches with no set meter, causing the ‎listener the usual perceptual bewilderment typical of the North American composer.‎
