Family Concert

The adventure of the voice

This concert features two compositions by György Ligeti, one of the most important composers of the 20th century: Aventures and Nouvelles Aventures. These miniature dramas show the entire kaleidoscope of vocal sounds: there’ll be groaning, humming, hissing, shrieking, sighing – alone or as a pair, but most of all higgledy-piggledy. Astonishing what a breadth of emotions can be conveyed with such a unique artificial language – using nothing more than the human voice!
