The Gesualdo Six
Owain Park director
Exploring a relationship between old and new, sacred and secular, our programme juxtaposes Tallis with Talbot and Tormis in an exhibition of some of the finest consort works from renaissance and modern-day composers.
Ligeti’s astonishing Nonsense Madrigals are set against the equally astounding harmonic language of Carlo Gesualdo, picking up one movement from each of his three settings of Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Week.
The winning composition of The Gesualdo Six’s second composition competition will be premiered as part of the performance.
