Description: A composer who has an especially strong affinity for the human voice, and who has made a passionate study of literary and poetic texts, Lauridsen has emerged as a strikingly original voice in contemporary music. The Madrigali are an explicit homage to Italian Renaissance examples of the genre, incorporating bold dissonant shifts in harmony and an alternation of complex polyphony and sudden, simple resolutions, intensely telling in their emotional effect and the Mid-Winter Songs are the most emotionally complex works here, and the most extrovert. Elora Festival Singers; Noel Edison.
