    LIGETI Aventures & Nouvelles Aventures

Ligeti’s astonishing Aventures Nouvelles Aventures is both touching and comic. Three singers – alone in their little universe – tell each other stories, exchange confidences and play games through an invented language of the emotions. Meanwhile, the instrumentalists punctuate the drama with some extreme musical interjections involving a giant hammer, a tray of crockery, and a large rug!

Voice, film and dance combine in Psappha’s atmospheric production of Kurtág’s Scenes from a Novel, which explores the contradictions between fleeting experience and the persistence of memory.

Also featuring Bartók’s exhilarating Sonata for Pianos and Percussion and Lutosławski’s witty, two-piano arrangement of Variations on a Theme of Paganini, the concert launches Psappha’s new season in terrific style.
