Ensemble x.y at St. John Smith Square

  • St. John Smith Square SW1P 3HA (map)

Ensemble x.y presents a concert of four entwined modern works: investigations into the luminous and the blurred (blurring like heat haze or an over abundant information stream, luminous like clean technology and decisive intention).

Each work, from Agata Zubel’s exquisite setting of Samuel Beckett’s poem Cascando, to the modern master Salvatore Sciarrino’s highly dramatic Piano Trio No. 2, balances finely the demands of sensuous beauty and compositional rigour, discipline with fancy, modern technique with musical engagement.

Ensemble x.y are particularly excited to present a new commission by Sara Cubarsi, x.y violinist and doctoral student at the California Institute of the Arts, written especially for this concert.
