Sō Percussion returns to Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall, performing a characteristically diverse program of collaborative works with composer/musicians native to the intersection of popular and art music: Glenn Kotche (of Wilco), Shara Worden (of My Brightest Diamond), Steven Mackey, and Yuka Honda (of Cibo Matto).
“Through a mix of consummate skill and quirky charm, this mercurial quartet has helped to ignite an explosive new enthusiasm for percussion music old and new,” says The New York Times about Sō Percussion. This program includes a new piece by former rock drummer Glenn Kotche, whose works combine impeccable rhythms with fleeting, haunting melodies. “The range of colors and voices that Sō Percussion coaxes from its menagerie is astonishing and entrancing” (Billboard).

Based on actual 18th-century texts, Anatomy Theater follows the astonishing progression of an English murderess: from confession to execution and, ultimately, public dissection before a paying audience of fascinated onlookers. Through the miracle of opera, she sings through it all.
Anatomy Theater conjures a time when “specialists” traveled from town to town in pre-modern Europe, conducting public dissections of the corpses of executed criminals, seeking evidence of moral corruption in the interior of the human body. Written by Pulitzer Prize–winning composer David Lang and world-renowned visual artist Mark Dion, Anatomy Theater is a joyous, tuneful and grisly theatrical event.
