Soprano Juliet Fraser performs Morton Feldman’s Three Voices (1982)
Friday 17th June 8pm
The Exchange, doors open at 7.30pm, plus pre-concert dinner offer available
Join us for this exclusive performance by Soprano Juliet Fraser.
Morton Feldman’s Three Voices (1982), a trio for the one voice: performing one part live, the singer stands between two speakers which play the other two pre-recorded parts.
Setting a fragment of text by Frank O’Hara, the piece is one long, mesmeric unfurling of whirling, interwoven patterns.
The performance will last 55 minutes with no breaks.
For a little taster have a listen to some excerpts here.
Tickets £10 in advance (from The Exchange)  or on the door.
