2017: EXAUDI at 15
This year EXAUDI turns 15 years old!
Our first-ever concert – a mixture of ancient and modern (Schütz, Finnissy, Birtwistle, Zev Gordon and Weeks) of the kind that has become one of our programming specialities – took place on 22nd February 2002.
Now more than 250 projects later, we’ll be partying in style at the Wigmore Hall on Saturday 1st April 2017 with the latest installment of our Italian Madrigal Book: music by Sciarrino, Arcadelt, Wert, Monteverdi and a substantial new work by James Weeks, Libro di fiammelle e ombre.
Later in the season we make two significant returns: firstly to Paris, for a revival of Alberto Posadas’ Tenebrae, and then to Aldeburgh, where we will be appearing for the first time since 2014 with a new programme exploring Renaissance composers’ interest in extreme chromaticism and microtonality.
We’ll also be appearing at the PRSF New Music Biennial in London and Hull in performances of Laurence Crane’s 2014 EXAUDI commission, Pieces About Art.
