Endymion & EXAUDI: Music for People II

Endymion & EXAUDI: Music for People II

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'.

This second concert presents music by one of the american pioneers of new simplicity, Morton Feldman.

Feldman's beautiful, unaccompanied song 'Only' is reminiscent of folk music, while 'Voices and Cello' and 'Clarinet and String Quartet' are two works that tease out scrumptuous harmonies and overlapping lines to create timeless journeys through sound. A rare opportunity to hear these seminal works.

Endymion and EXAUDI are delighted to showcase commissions by two imaginative young composers, Andrew Hamilton and James Weeks, who also embrace something of Feldman's influence, and bring a refreshing 'new simplicity' to contemporary music. Ones to watch for the future.

The first part of 'Music for People' is on Monday 19 September at 7.45pm, the Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall, and features music by Arvo Pärt, Philip Venables and Joanna Bailie.
