JULIET FRASER - THREE VOICES - 9:00pm
Three Voices, written in 1982 for Joan La Barbara, was the last solo vocal piece Morton Feldman wrote before his death in 1987. Conceived as a trio for the one voice, with two pre-recorded parts and one to be performed live, the score is conventionally notated but is beguilingly short on some details. Writing later about Three Voices, Feldman said: 'One of my closest friends, the painter Philip Guston, had just died; Frank O'Hara had died several years before. I saw the piece with Joan in front and these two loudspeakers behind her. There is something kind of tombstoney about the look of loudspeakers. I thought of the piece as an exchange of the live voice with the dead ones - a mixture of the living and the dead'.
British soprano Juliet Fraser has a repertoire dominated by the very old and the very new. She has premiered well over 100 works, many of which have been written for her. Her commercial recording of Morton Feldman's Three Voices was released on Hat Hut Records in November 2016. This performance is part of her U.S. debut tour.
