NEW MUSIC | Concert 2

Sunday 24th February 2019
4:00pm Department of Music
Palace Green, Durham

Ives Ensemble

Alvin Lucier - Nothing is Real
Aldo Clementi - Trio
Cassandra Miller - For Mira
Bernd Alois Zimmermann - Intercomunicazione

This afternoon concert gives us an opportunity to experience another achingly beautiful sculpture of sound by Clementi, the true master of the canon, while Lucier’s Nothing is Real presents us with a concept that is as ingenious as it is captivating, stretching the concept of space by making a teapot into a cathedral of sound. Zimmerman stretches the notion of time with vast vistas for cello and piano, while Miller’s solo violin work places this in stark contrast with its spectacularly virtuosic eruptions.

Tickets: £7, Students £2.50, Under 18s Free
