Music of Today: Vito Zuraj

Part of Classical Season 2017/18

We are proud to present the first major UK showcase of original music by Slovenian composer Vito Žuraj.

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 Ubuquity, 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 Gorič soprano

Repertoire

Vito Žuraj: Aftertouch for ensemble (UK premiere); Quiet, please; Übürall (Ubuquity) - farces for soprano & ensemble (World premiere of English version)
