Hiérophanie for Soprano and Ensemble

Seeking the sacred in the profane and the transcendent in the ordinary, the Ensemble intercontemporain and its artistic director, Matthias Pintscher, perform Hiérophanie, an enigmatic piece of instrumental theater by Claude Vivier that moves between improvisation and ritual.The program’s first half is dedicated to new works by the young Frenchman Sasha J. Blondeau and by Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg.
