In its fifth year in residency at SXU, Fonema Consort extends the scope of its annual residency by leading a workshop with students based on movement 7 of Cornelius Cardew’s The Great Learning, a work meant to be inclusive of performers regardless of musical training. The residency will conclude with a concert of representative works from the modernist and experimental traditions, including interconnected duos for voice and flute from Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire, Boulez’s Le marteau sans maître, and Ferneyhough’s Études Transcendantales.
