Salvatore Sciarrino (Introduzione all’oscuro)
Wim Henderickx (Disappearing in Light)

Musical team


The search for the musical reproduction of light and dark has been a constant aspect of Western musical history ranging from the melismatic “Fiat lux” in Gregorian chant to the “clair-obscur” of baroque techniques, which unleashed an expressive revolution both in the plastic arts and in music, ripples of which we still feel today.

In this concert HERMESensemble investigates the current sound of dark and light with reference to the oeuvre of Salvatore Sciarrino and Wim Henderickx.
