Ligeti - Reggel

For its second concert of the season, the department's versatile contemporary ensemble explores music that bridges the borders of night and day. Bookended by Éjszaka and Reggel, György Ligeti's vibrant choral depictions of night and morning, the evening provides a fantastic opportunity to hear the work of Royal Philharmonic Society Award-winning composer and York alumnus Christian Mason. Written in 2009, Noctilucence takes its inspiration from dusk clouds and has been praised by Richard Morrison (The Times) and Ivan Hewitt (The Telegraph). The concert also includes striking works from two giants of 20th-century sound architecture: Iannis Xenakis and Pierre Boulez, as well as the premiere of this year's undergraduate commission.

There will also be a concert at 1.00pm; tickets £2 on the door (free to Music Society members)

One of the concerts will include Edward Caine's "Two Poems" performed by Edward Caine
