Endymion & EXAUDI: Music for People I

 19 September 2011 at 7.45 pm - 9.45 pm 

Endymion & EXAUDI: Music for People I

Purcell Room, London
South Bank, London SE1
United Kingdom
08703 800400


'The Brilliant Endymion' and EXAUDI 'the extraordinary ensemble of vocal virtuosi' collaborate on two beautiful evenings of 'new simplicity'.

The first concert presents Arvo Pärt's serene Stabat Mater for voices and strings. This haunting, religious work uses the same falling figures as his well-known 'Cantus in Memorium Banjamin Britten'. That, alongside estbalished favourites of his 'Fratres' and 'Summa', are amongst the best of 'holy minimalism' - a real treat to be heard together.

Endymion and EXAUDI are delighted to showcase commissions by two imaginative British composers who also embrace something of a 'new simplicity' in their music - Joanna Bailie and Philip Venables.

Please note - the second part of 'Music for People' is on Wednesday 21 September at 7.45pm, the Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall, and features works by Morton Feldman, James Weeks and Andrew Hamilton.
