Concert Information

Leading UK contemporary vocal ensemble EXAUDI is committed to performing the most challenging and exciting new music: Christopher Fox’s Preluding, dedicated to Tippett, instructs the performers to sing ‘like a gale’; Assigned#3 is part of James Saunders’ modular composition project #[unassigned], first performed in Edinburgh in 2007 and makes use of cups and tissue paper; Amber Priestley’s Floors… is based on a Shel Silverstein poem about an abandoned house; and there are three choral works by Christian Wolff including his first set of madrigals from the 1950s, and those set to poems by the American poet John Ashbery written specifically for EXAUDI.
