Volti premieres a new work from Jack Hughes, the winner of its young-composer competition (the Choral Arts Laboratory), and brings back last years winner, Tonia Ko, reprising her "From Ivory Depths." The program will also include "Consent" by Ted Hearne, one of the brightest rising stars in the world of new music, and one with whom Volti feels a close affinity -- we discovered him as our Choral Arts Lab composer in 2010. |
Also on the program is "Wie ein kind" by Per Nørgård, perhaps the dean of Denmark's contemporary composers. With respect to his experiments with new styles, Nørgård said, "I find myself on a succession of different slippery slopes, but always on slippery slopes. Yet this isn't a matter of escaping, for usually earlier strategies and ideas emerge again later in new contexts."
Completing the program will be another movement from Joby Talbot's "Path of Miracles," continuing the workshop phase of Volti's upcoming 2018 collaboration with KT Nelson and ODC/Dance.
