Sound Icon performs Beat Furrer's Nuun and Narcissus-Fragment, and Helmut Lachenmann's masterwork "zwei Gefühle"...Musik mit Leonardo.
Sound Icon's final concert of the 2011-2012 season features three incredible works, all for a duo of soloists and large ensemble, by composers Beat Furrer and Helmut Lachenmann. On the program are Furrer's obsessive, contemplative Nuun, for two pianos and ensemble; Furrer's Narcissus-Fragment, for two speakers and ensemble (Boston premiere); and "zwei Gefühle"...Musik mit Leonardo, a masterpiece from Helmut Lachenmann for two speakers and ensemble.
There are incredible logistical and practical issues with the pieces on this program - the Lachenmann piece, for example, requires the musicians to essentially re-learn how to play their instruments, which is no trivial thing! Each of these pieces involves over 20 musicians.
We need your help in continuing to bring this challenging, fulfilling music to Boston! Our first full season has been spectacular so far - please help us support the musicians who have made it so spectacular.
