Bienen Contemporary/Early Vocal Ensemble: Sound in Architecture

Date and Time: 
Sunday, January 10, 2016 - 4:00pm
Mary B. Galvin Recital Hall

Preconcert lecture by Ryan Dohoney, 3 p.m. in the David and Carol McClintock Choral and Recital Room

Donald Nally, conductor

The ensemble continues the yearlong dedication of its new home with two iconic works, written five centuries apart, for the consecrations of two equally iconic buildings. Guillaume Dufay’s Nuper rosarum flores (Recently garlands… adorned this temple) of 1463 is echoed from a distance by Morton Feldman’s 1971 Rothko Chapel for viola, percussion, and choir, written for the eponymous chapel in Houston. Offering its own grand architecture of 24 solo voices is Bo Holten's In nomine (1999), based on music of 16th-century English composer John Taverner, and Santa Ratniece's horo horo hata hata.

Tickets are $8 for the general public and $5 for students with valid ID.
