Event

The Fifth House Ensemble - Exotic Americas and Beyond
This program opens with a trio full of light and bubbly melodies to set the stage for the music to come. Each player has a feature work to share both their instrument and character with the audience. The program builds to Crumb's Voice of the Whale, a semi-staged work where performers are masked. In Voice of the Whale (Vox Balaenae) the players rarely use their instruments in the expected ways. Extended techniques abound including singing into the flute, making the cello sound like a flock of seagulls, and harmonics inside the piano. Vox Balaenae was the first piece our instrumentalists performed together, years before the forming of Fifth House Ensemble, and remains one of their most popular performance pieces.
