Hyperion Ensemble performs new works by Hodgkinson, Dumitrescu, Cazaban, Teodorescu and Avram.
Saturday, November 22th at 7.30pm, Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL
IO Quartet and Hyperion Ensemble perform new works by Dumitrescu and Avram. Soloists: Tim Hodgkinson (UK), Gustavo Aguilar (USA).
“Dumitrescu’s music has a visceral, untidy force rare in classical music – the textures of Xenakis pared of the later’s Beethovenian ambition, made more focused and linear. Seems like these Romanians are engaged in a similar kind of sonic research to that which resulted on the masterpieces of Giacinto Scelsi and Ennio Morricone: collective endeavor, genuine “deep listening”. The results are similarly overpowering, a million miles from the tooting inconsequence or most of what passes for New Music in the classical world.” Ben Watson, The Wire | http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iancu_Dumitrescu
