These four singers (which you might know from Silbersee) have been singing contemporary repertoire with an enormous dedication and expertise for years and years now – both as soloists as in company of others. David Lang’s Love Fail seems tailor-made for them; a 12-song cycle of modern madrigals on the eternal love theme. Happy new year, everybody!
 
Program

  • David Lang – Love fail (2012) tekst door David Lang (naar Lydia Davis, Marie de France, Gottfried von Strassburg, Béroul, Thomas of Britain and Richard Wagner)
 
Love Fail is a stunning piece for four female vocalists who play scarse percussion while they’re at it. Each of the 12 madrigal-like songs shines a new light on love, and how it is able to crush, lift, disgrace, destroy and forgive the body. Even though the tragedy of Tristan & Isolde was Lang’s initial vantage point for this piece, he’s chosen plenty of lyrics that attempt to restore love’s upsetting human face. From atmospheric harmonies to screeching passion, this very set of euphonious songs shows listeners the full scope of what vocal music has to offer.
