The 2019/20 season kicks off with a juicy little sprint through September: Berio Sinfonia with EXAUDI in Helsinki, Grisey Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil with Susanna Mälkki and the Karajan Academy for Berlin Festspiele/Musikfest Berlin, and a solo recital featuring repertoire by Saunders, Poppe and Czernowin for Musica Strasbourg. Later in the Autumn I'll be tackling Luca Francesconi’s Etymo II for Milano Musica, rejoining Ensemble Musikfabrik for performances in Essen and Cologne of Rebecca Saunders’s new piece for voice and ensemble, Nether, and performing a double-whammy of Heinz Holliger and Naomi Pinnock with Sonar Quartett in the opening concert of this year's hcmf//.
Behind the scenes, I am working with Cassandra Miller, Sivan Eldar and Pascale Criton on new works to be unveiled in 2020, and recording two compilation solo discs — details to follow. EXAUDI’s new CD of the extraordinary late madrigals of Gesualdo is now out! Order it here.
