Musicon NEW MUSIC Focus
This year’s Musicon focus event offers three opportunities for you to hear the Ives Ensemble play some hidden gems from the repertoire of the last 50 years or so. The concerts will focus on pieces by Alvin Lucier and Aldo Clementi – two composers whose works are as enigmatic as they are considered. Both stand out as towering enigmas of invention with a near-stubborn insistence on a purity of artistic vision that is as rare as it is captivating.
A pre-festival talk with Ives Ensemble director and pianist John Snijders will take place in the Music Department Lecture Room at 18.00 on Saturday 23rd February.
