Neue Vocalsolisten

ICE

MATA brings together two of the finest international ensembles in a first-ever pairing. Germany’s Neue Vocalsolisten, an ensemble who the Financial Times says come “formidably close to achieving the impossible” is joined by ICE  – “the new gold standard for new music” (The New Yorker) in an American premiere performance of Oscar Bianchi’s evening-length cantata Matra. Featuring six vocalists; a solo trio of contrabass Tubax saxophone, contrabass recorder, and bass flute; large ensemble and electronics; and setting text from Lucretius, the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, and the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, this is an evening not to be missed.
