James Weeks director

Since its formation 15 years ago, EXAUDI has expanded the boundaries of repertoire for vocal ensemble and explored compelling combinations of contemporary and early repertoire.

The clarity and focus of the ensemble’s sound, produced by outstanding individual singers performing as chamber musicians, ideally suits its immersion here in two of Monteverdi’s most expressive madrigals and works by two Franco-Flemish composers who made their reputations in Italy. The madrigal form’s vivacity is also present in EXAUDI’s selections from Salvatore Sciarrino’s 12 Madrigali, settings of nature-themed Japanese haiku created for the 2007 Salzburg Festival, and in James Weeks’s new work for EXAUDI.
