New Friday is the series for anyone who is curious and interested in exploring the new music of our era.

Igbo is a language consisting eight vowels and 30 consonants; it is spoken by 18 million people in Nigeria. It contains two distinctive pitches that can be used when composing with lyrics in the language, which composer Charles Uzor has done in his piece Mother Tongue from 2007.

Uzor was born in Udo Mbaise in Nigeria, but moved to Switzerland at the age of seven. He composes music for orchestra and choir, for dancing and for opera, but above all, he composes chamber music – and preferably for voice.

Mother Tongue will be performed this evening by KammarensembleN and the German singer Isabel Pfefferkorn. Since its formation in 1984, KammarensembleN has become established as one of the most influential ensembles on the Swedish contemporary classical music scene. Pfefferkorn is a versatile, award-winning musician with expressive and intuitive musicality. She has a broad repertoire and sings music in styles ranging from Baroque to contemporary, as well as jazz and pop. In 2017, she debuted at Konzerthaus in Vienna with music by Pierre Boulez. A highlight from recent seasons was a tour of the US and Canada, during which she presented her interpretation of Franz Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise.
