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, 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’ new work, Nether, and working with Sonar Quartett for a double-whammy of Heinz Holliger and Naomi Pinnock for 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. This Autumn also sees the much-anticipated release of EXAUDI’s take on the extraordinary late madrigals of Carlo Gesualdo.
