At 34 years old, singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens has already become an American folk/indie icon, topping the charts with his album Illinois (one state from his Fifty States Project). His soon-to-be released Run Rabbit Run is a re-working of his album Enjoy Your Rabbit, a collection of electronic instrument pieces inspired by each year of the Chinese zodiac. This time around, he collaborates with the Osso String Quartet along with others like Nico Muhly and Gabriel Kahane, and together they create a rich re-invention of Stevens's original work. Also tonight, music of Astor Piazzolla and Vince Guaraldi.
