Internationally-acclaimed duo Clare and David Lesser explore the very latest developments in the song repertoire. World premieres dedicated to the performers by leading British composer Michael Finnissy and radical German modernist Hans Joachim Hespos are contrasted with two 20th-century classics: Luigi Nono’s searing, politically-charged soundscape La fabbrica illuminata and Hans Werner Henze’s haunting setting of Rimbaud, Being Beauteous. They will also present new settings of Rilke, Flecker and Morgenstern.
