Event details

Juliet Fraser returns to Turner Sims as part of our contemporary series and works with composition students.

Three Voices, written in 1982 for Joan La Barbara, was the last solo vocal piece written by Morton Feldman before his death in 1987. Conceived as a trio for the one voice, with two pre-recorded parts and one to be performed live, it sets part of 'Wind', a poem by his friend Frank O'Hara. Juliet Fraser's 'spell-binding new version' lasts 53 minutes: 'A snowblinding mesh of strong beats crossing weaker downbeats keeps the music static yet oddly busy – the delicate tread of Fraser’s rhythmic footfall leading you further into the blizzard.' (Gramophone Magazine).

Free admission

Juliet will follow today’s concert with a workshop where she will work with composition students from the Music Department. All are welcome to attend.
