Alberto Posadas: La Lumière Du Noir, by the Ensemble Intercontemporain directed by Duncan Ward

Feel the tension rising with the Ensemble Intercontemporain

Spanish composer Alberto Posadas brings spine-tingling sensations to the audience with a musical portrayal of darkness and light. Difficult listening for even the most well-eared contemporary listener, Posadas’s score requires British conductor Duncan Ward to expertly guide the ensemble through a dense fog of difficult timing and tenuously placed percussion. If you don’t have an ear for high-pitched dissonance, this listen may be tough. However, it is worth hearing the truly unique sounds created by the ensemble.
