A Modern Liederabend

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

It’s a modern liederabend, literally “song night,” for this New Sounds show.  Listen to vocal and choral music from living composers like Missy Mazzoli – and some of her multimedia chamber opera about Isabelle Eberhardt, as well as MIT professor Tod Machover – and an aria from his opera VALIS, based on the Phillip K. Dick novel.  Also, there’s music by Paola Prestini inspired by Kandinsky's 1912 manuscript of woodcuts and prose, “Sounds.”  Also, listen to new music from Bryce Dessner, featuring the Brooklyn Youth Chorus and Kronos Quartet from his recent release, “Aheym.”  And more.

This Friday, 11/22, and Saturday, 11/23 at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) is the third biennial Lieder-pa-looza, featuring many of these works.  Details here.
