Music of Today: Vito Zuraj
Part of Classical Season
We are proud to present the first major UK showcase of original music by Slovenian composer Vito Zuraj.
The evening opens with Aftertouch, a work full of fast-paced slides and sudden shifts from high to low which create a fantastical sound world, and closes with a world premiere of Ubiquitous, a semi-theatrical work for soprano and ensemble that takes inspiration from the character of King Ubu from the modernist play of the same name by French author Alfred Jarry.
Performers Philharmonia Orchestra Joana Mallwitz conductor Nika Goric soprano
: Aftertouch for ensemble(UK premiere); Ubuquity - farces for soprano & ensemble(World premiere of English version)
