Tuesday 14 January, 8pm
Théâtre Garonne, Toulouse
Salvatore Sciarrino | Tre Madrigali
Carlo Gesualdo | Tre Madrigali
Johannes Schöllhorn | Madrigali a Dio
Michael Finnissy | Gesualdo: Sesto Libro
James Weeks | conductor
Ecstasies of pain and pleasure interpenetrate in Michael Finnissy's new madrigal cycle Gesualdo: Sesto Libro. Pier Paolo Pasolini agonises between religion and sexuality in Johannes Schöllhorn's pungent Madrigali a Dio; sets of three madrigals by both Gesualdo and Sciarrino complete this programme of madrigals, then and now.
