New Music strains its neck to look back at the Past: a Shakespearean squall, verses scribbled by bored mediaeval clerics, one lullaby retrieved from a Winter’s day . . .
A performance by an uncommon two-headed creature. Singapore’s own SYC Ensemble Singers meets the acclaimed Vancouver-based Turning Point Ensemble, meets voices, winds, strings and percussion, meets God and Man, meets continent and island, meets Love and Death, meets faraway and nearby.
Showcasing the work of Canadian composers, the programme includes Owen Underhill’s suite for instrumental ensemble and choir A Middle English Songbook (2007), Alexina Louie’s A Curious Passerby At Fu’s Funeral (2015), and Rita Ueda’s triple-movement yuki ya kon (2017)—an unmissable lineup of contemporary music reinventing the ensemble format.
