Description

Conductor Nils Schweckendiek

Mailika Kishino Prayer / Inori (world premiere – this version)

Luciano Berio Cries of London

Alejandro Vinao Fear (world premiere)

Antti Auvinen on,-ne,-ni (UK premiere)

Join Finland’s only professional chamber choir, the Helsinki Chamber Choir, defined by composer Jonathan Harvey as "the finest choir in the World", as they perform an international programme of new music featuring two world premieres, and a UK premiere.

Reflecting on our Berio Theme, this evening’s programme includes his Cries of London, a work in which the text is taken from phrases used by old street vendors in London, works by Japanese born composer Mailika Kishino (the version of which has been newly composed for the London Ear Festival) and Argentinian composer Alejandro Vinao; before finishing with the UK premiere of a work by Finnish composer Antti Auvinen.
