The Paradoxical Lore Lixenberg




Mezzo soprano Lore Lixenberg presents an intriguing programme of rarely heard music for voice, harp and electronics, including Luigi Nono's landmark, highly politicised piece La fabbrica illuminata, which pits the live singer against the sounds of a factory.Lore Lixenberg: woman walks up some steps and is reflected in part of the image
