In the nearly eight decades of its existence, this 24-voice crack ensemble has created a distinctive musical identity, theatrical and expressive, that has made them a powerful presence at the BBC Proms and Lincoln Center’s White Lights Festival. The choir is a creative lab, encouraging composers to write music that challenges the limits of vocal expression. Revelatory performances—early music to new works written for the group—exhibit luminous textures and immaculate technique, in a choral blend of “surpassing beauty.” (Sydney Morning Herald). In this concert they perform music from the time of Gesualdo to recent works by their countrymen, Petris Vasks and ?riks Ešenvalds, and transcriptions of works by Gustav Mahler: two songs and the haunting Adagietto from his 5th symphony.
