Two nominees for ICMA Award 2014
Sciarrino’s interpretation of Macbeth was performed in 2011 at Salzburg Festival within the "Kontinent" concert series and was released as a festival audio document in 2012.

The Guardian says: "The elusive soundworld, often on the edge of audibility, is instantly recognisable as Sciarrino’s, a wonderfully consistent and compellingly obsessive creation that retains the power to shock and surprise."

With Otto Katzameier, Anna Radziejewska, Richard Zook, Sonia Turchetta, Thomas Mehnert, the vocal ensemble NOVA and Klangforum Wien conducted by Evan Christ.

As a commission by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, French composer Pascal Dusapin created a song cycle for his friend Georg Nigl, based on texts by Friedrich Nietzsche. The close collaboration of the two artists gave rise not just to a work for Georg Nigl’s voice per se but rather for his singing corpus, for his voice upon the stage.

Wiener Zeitung writes:
"The composer uses a striking musical language, perfectly reflecting any emotion possible. Georg Nigls flexible baritone touches in all fibres of the incredible texts - also in the upper tenor range, the voice sounds comfortably native."

Sferraina create an enchanting sound space, where music from past eras continually overlaps and interacts with the present. Highly recommended!
