Graindelavoix is notorious for their daring and alienating performances that embrace the imperfections of what it means to be human. During Le Guess Who? 2018, the Antwerp ensemble gave an overwhelming performance of the four-hour piece ‘Tenebrae Responsoria’ by Carlo Gesualdo: a 17th-century progressive composer from Italy who became an influence on groundbreaking composers like Igor Stravinsky and Arnold Schönberg.
The performance at Le Guess Who? was presented in cooperation with Utrecht Early Music Festival, and that's where Graindelavoix returns to in August, to perform 'Tenebrae Responsoria' again. If you missed the performance at LGW (or want to experience it again), then we are able to offer you a special discount for the concerts on 29, 30 and 31 August at the Janskerk in Utrecht.
Tickets are available from June 1st, 10 AM via the website of the Utrecht Early Music Festival, select promotional price and use the promo code LGW19 to purchase tickets for €35 instead of €39.
