Ensemble 0 - Pauline Oliveros / György Ligeti: Musica Nuvolosa


  • £12.99

After its reading of Julius Eastman's Feminine, released in 2021, the Ensemble 0 revisit the repertoires of Pauline Oliveros and György Ligeti from another angle. 
From the works of Oliveros, they exhumed a deeply meditative piece for accordion and voice, giving it a new life in the form of vaporous, cloud-riding chamber music. With Ligeti, the piano radicalism of the Musica Ricercata miniatures crops up again in a new and as yet unreleased orchestration. 


György Ligeti (1923-2006) was a Hungarian-Austrian composer of contemporary classical music. He has been described as one of the most important avant-garde composers in the latter half of the twentieth century and one of the most innovative and influential among progressive figures of his time. 
Pauline Oliveros (1932-2016) was an American composer, accordionist and a central figure in the development of post-war experimental and electronic music. 
Ensemble 0 is a "variable geometry group" formed in France in 2004 by Joël Merah, Stéphane Garin, and Sylvain Chauveau, whose line-up and instruments change according to the repertoire performed, working with many regular and invited collaborators.
