Pixels Ensemble’s programme reflects diverse composers’ expression of spirituality. From Bach’s late contrapuntal style, through Messiaen’s devoted use of birdsong to Gubaidulina‘a fiendishly virtuosic ‘Rejoice!’ Sonata; these iconic works are at the heart of their composers’ musical philosophy. The concert is completed by a sublime exploration of musical textures by Tristan Murail and pieces by composition students at Liverpool Hope University.
