Three Voices

Morton Feldman’s late work Three Voices (1982) is grand scale minimalism at its most sublime. It is also one of the most demanding pieces ever written for voice.

Soprano Sonya Holowell will perform the full work following her presentation of an excerpt at the National Gallery of Australia last year as part of “Sounding Turrell” curated by Roland Peelman.

The three voices – two pre-recorded and the third performed live – surround the audience and sing a capella. Lush, immersive and nuanced, Feldman uses repetition to unlock an astonishing range of rhythms, textures and tone colours.

Previously Young Artist/Director with the Song Company (2014), Holowell currently directs CACHE in POINT, a concert platform for contemporary classical music, inter-disciplinary experimentation and spontaneous music.

Date: Sunday 21 February, 3pm
Concert duration: approx. 50 mins, no interval. Please note that latecomers cannot be admitted.
Venue: Delmar Gallery
Tickets: from $20 / FREE for Trinity students & Society of the Arts members
