Georges Aperghis: 14 Recitations | Stephanie Lamprea, Voice

$15 General, $10 Members & Students
Buy Online
Curator: Kurt Rohde
Recitations (1977-8) is a 40-minute work for solo voice. Divided into 14 movements, this piece breaks down traditions of music and theater through atonality, extended technique (including operatic singing, speaking, sputters and screams), puzzles and repetitions. The text is derived from the French language but the translation is meaningless and nonsensical as it groups random words and even breaks down words to random syllables. More Info
