Celebrating the Americas, this programme illustrates the vast diversity of the repertory on the other side of the pond. The most emblematic representatives of American culture ─ Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Barber and Philip Glass ─ will share the spotlight with young and brilliant heirs. Eric Whitacre offers his innovative vision of choral composition with Lux aurumque, a work originally conceived for a virtual choir, while, from South America, Violeta Cruz brings a piece commissioned by accentus for professional choir, children’s choir and audience participation.
