An amazing Liederabend
On November 6 the Trieste Prima contemporary music festival presented the second concert of its season. The soprano Ku Hsiao Pei and the pianist Muriel Grifò performed - successfully - an interesting Italian contemporary vocal music program, including the "avantgarde classics" Petrassi and Dallapiccola. The moving Coral's Trakl Lieder were included as well. The concert was presented by the famous Italian musicologist Paolo Petazzi; he underlined the Middle-European taste of Coral's music. The two musicians performed Berio's Sequenza III and Encores too. Standing ovation.
