Program Notes

Audivi Media Nocte (I heard at midnight) is based on the eponymous motet by Thomas Tallis from the 16th Century – a work that holds great fascination for Oliver Waespi. During the process of composition, various chord sequences and rhythmical structures emerged that led the work in the direction of a musical drama, with elements of a concerto grosso and solos for different soloists.

-Program Note by publisher


Written as a loose arch form in five parts, Audivi Media Nocte is a musical narrative that continually fluctuates between prayerful and raving moods, comtemplative and frivolos atmospheres, and the past and the present. These important dialectics are central to understanding and performing this work.
