Divisi Chamber Singers | La Nuova Musica
18 April 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm AEST$25
Divisi Chamber Singers’ latest program, contrasts “new music” from the 21st Century with “La Nuova Musica”, a style of 17th Century music dominated by composers the likes of Monteverdi and Gesualdo.
We tackle this difficult repertoire with a group of 6 emerging young consort singers, just as it would have been performed in the Early Baroque Italian tradition. Featured works include Monteverdi’s haunting four movement madrigal cycle “Lamento D’Arianna”, and “Words of Wisdom”, a song cycle by celebrated Melbourne based composer, Katy Abbott.
