Musicon Concert Series 2015/2016 Musicon Focus: Words & Music
This year’s Musicon Concert Series opens with a new music festival which has a sound emphasis on the marriage between grand literature and new music. Spread over three evenings, this mini-festival includes world-class performances by mezzo-soprano Lore Lixenberg, and Amsterdam’s fabulous Ives Ensemble together with actors and speakers from the North East. The series will feature quintessential twentieth-century composers such as Steve Reich, Gyorgy Kurtag, John Cage and Morton Feldman, alongside a brilliant younger generation including Austria’s leading composer Peter Ablinger and rising Dutch star Anthony Fiumara. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience a long weekend of cutting-edge music from the most current voices. The weekend begins on Friday 6 November with concerts on Saturday 7 November and Sunday 8 November, all at 7.30 pm.
