Shelter performed by Casa da Música Remix Ensemble

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 - 7:30pm

The universe of Shelter evokes the power and the threat of nature, the promise of expanding the boundaries contained within the structure of a new home, the pure aesthetic beauty of houseplants, the sweet architecture of sound and the apprehensive vulnerability that exists even in the safety of sleep. A profound and moving reflection on the meaning of having a shelter with music performed by the founders of the New York group Bang on a Can. The beautiful images of Shelter, Bill Morrison’s film with music by David Lang, Michael Gordon and Julia Wolfe, is only comparable to the magic of the music, the energy of the rhythm and the purity of the vocal writing.

'almost all the time'; 'prayers for night and sleep'; 'just (after song of songs); 'mystery sonatas' performed by musicians from the New World Symphony

Sunday, February 10, 2019 - 3:00pm

“With his winning of the Pulitzer Prize for The Little Match Girl Passion (one of the most original and moving scores of recent years), Lang, once a post-minimalist enfant terrible, has solidified his standing as an American master.” — The New Yorker

The music of David Lang, one of America’s most acclaimed composers, has been performed around the world by ensembles such as the BBC Symphony, The New York Philharmonic, Santa Fe Opera, the Kronos Quartet, and Eighth Blackbird. His opera, orchestra, chamber, and solo works are by turns ominous, ethereal, urgent, hypnotic, unsettling, and emotionally direct. Much of his work expands the definition of musical virtuosity itself. This concert features an array of musicians performing his work, with an introduction by Lang.

Saturday, February 2, 2019 - 7:00pm

Ireland’s foremost contemporary music ensemble, Crash Ensemble arrives at the ideal time to perform for Musica nova. This highly popular group will play two concerts, which will also feature the CrashLands film project.

At the first concert, held in Rehearsal Hall Paavo at the Helsinki Music Centre, Crash Ensemble will perform, among others, the new work Grey Area by its resident composer Sam Perkin, who is one of the hottest names in contemporary Irish music. Perkin – a skateboarder and contemporary composer – combines, in a surprising way, orchestral music and a nighttime skateboarding video in which the audience is taken on a hypnotic journey through the streets of Dublin and Cork. The concert also features the premiere of work by Finnish-Canadian Matthew Whittall as well as the piece Glamour Sleeper by one of the ensemble’s founding members, Donnacha Dennehy.

'the little match girl passion' performed by Helsinki Chamber Choir

Saturday, February 2, 2019 - 4:30pm

The Helsinki Chamber Choir’s concert features a brand new commissioned piece and contemporary music that engages in dialogue with Baroque classics. In his work The Little Match Girl Passion (2007), post-minimalist David Lang presents his interpretation of H.C. Andersen’s classic tale. The work also draws, however, from the form of the St Matthew Passion by Bach, and the tale is raised to a new level to compare a little girl’s anguish to the suffering of Jesus.

Icelandic Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s arrestingly beautiful Ad Genua for string quintet and mixed choir (2016) is one of seven works by contemporary composers written for the American choir The Crossing, in response to the seven cantatas of Dietrich Buxtehude’sMembra Jesu Nostri.

The concert also features a premiere performance: praiseworthy Icelandic-German Steingrimur Rohloff has composed a new choir piece based on the texts of Danish poet Peter Laugesen. In recent times, Rohloff has been particularly praised as a composer of stage music.

LA Dance Project (Benjamin Millepied) performs to music by David Lang

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 to Friday, February 1, 2019

In 2011, Benjamin Millepied took his leave of the New York City Ballet, a company in which he danced all the major roles in the repertoire as principal dancer. A year later, he set up the L.A. Dance Project in Los Angeles, which is both a dance company and a creative hub bringing together a collective of artists from different fields (music, the visual arts, video, etc.). Building on its exceptional soloists and programmes which are open to all influences, the L.A. Dance Project combines Modern American Dance with a creative impetus which is deeply attuned to the contemporary world. For this third visit to the avenue Montaigne, Benjamin Millepied is taking over the entire evening to showcase his latest work.

MUTED performed by Monica Germino

Monday, January 28, 2019 to Wednesday, January 30, 2019

“I’m going to write you a piece so soft, I don’t care if no one can hear it.” 
This was composer Michael Gordon’s response to Monica Germino’s news that she would have to protect her hearing by stopping or adapting how she played the violin.

Inspired by Germino’s strength and determination, four of the world’s leading composers – Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe, and David Lang (co-founders of Bang on a Can) and legendary composer Louis Andriessen – joined forces to create MUTED. This collective composition features what Germino calls ‘whisperviolin’ and a part for Monica’s singing voice (in settings of texts from the 1930’s New York Post cult column Archy and Mehitabel).

Taking audiences to the thresholds of audibility, this intensely theatrical piece is conceived for small groups of listeners in intimate spaces.

The Series
Silent Voices is a multimedia, multi-composer, and multi-year series of concert works with spoken word conceived, produced and performed by Brooklyn Youth Chorus. Silent Voicesamplifies the voices of those silenced or marginalized in our communities and harnesses the power of young people to be instruments of change. The Chorus has commissioned a dynamic group of innovative artists to interpret rich personal stories and historical narratives exploring contemporary themes of identity, orientation, status, boundaries, and belonging.

Silent Voices: Lovestate, the third installment in the Silent Voices series, builds on the success of its earlier premieres at BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House, National Sawdust, and Prototype Festival, in a program including stand-out works from the earlier series and new premieres. In Lovestate, a dynamic roster of composers and artists collaborate with the choristers in confronting the challenges of division and categorization, racism, sexism, immigration, threats to our environment and our understanding of truth, as we seek to affirm our vision of a more inclusive and compassionate future—a world we can all look forward to. Unifying this musically and topically broad work is the distinctively versatile and beautiful sound of the rigorously-trained singers—a chorus of culturally and socioeconomically diverse New York City young people, ages 12–18. Commissioned composers for Lovestate include: Pulitzer Prize winners David Lang and Caroline Shaw, Nico Muhly, Shara Nova, Paola Prestini, Toshi Reagon, Angelica Negron, Bora Yoon, and others.

'the little match girl passion' performed by Silbersee

Thursday, December 20, 2018 - 8:15pm

The end of the year is a time of reflection, to reflect on the events around us. Together with writer Anna Enquist Silbersee brings a winter evening with stories and reflections, words and music. The musical heart of this evening is David Langs the little match girl passion . This gripping winter passion, to the fairytale about the girl with the sulfur sticks, was crowned in 2008 with the Pulitzer Prize.

In the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, composer David Lang saw a contemporary passion story that offers both believers and atheists a moment of reflection. The words of Anna Enquist express in their own way themes such as hope, doubt and comfort. Music plays an important role in her poetry and novels. Together with the music of Jörg Brinkmann and Arvo Pärt, this promises to be a musical evening of stillness and inspiration.

'the day' and 'world to come' performed by Maya Beiser to choreography by Lucinda Childs, with dancer Wendy Whelan

Friday, December 7, 2018 to Saturday, December 8, 2018

Dancer Wendy Whelan and cellist Maya Beiser join forces with the seminal modern dance choreographer Lucinda Childs to create THE DAY – an evening-length work, with evocative music by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang. THE DAY is a new work being developed at LUMBERYARD over a two-week production and technical residency, and will have its world premiere at Jacob's Pillow in summer 2019 and its New York premiere at The Joyce Theater in fall 2019, before touring the U.S. and abroad. Audiences are invited to see the work in progress at LUMBERYARD in showings on December 7 and 8.

Featuring both Beiser and Whelan onstage for the duration of the performance, THE DAY is a meditation on two journeys – the mortal passage, followed by the eternal, post-mortal voyage of the soul. This bold, highly collaborative work explores universal themes not easily grappled with – memory, aging, death, the survival of the soul – through the shared language of music and dance.

Julia Wolfe's Anthracite Fields, performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars and The Trinity Choir of Wall St, Julian Wachner conductor, at Zankel Hall!

Anthracite Fields performed by Bang on a Can All-Stars and Trinity Wall Street @ Carnegie Hall

Saturday, December 1, 2018 - 9:00pm

The music compels without overstatement,” wrote the Los Angeles Times of Julia Wolfe’s Pulitzer Prize–winning Anthracite Fields. “This is a major, profound work.” Inspired by miners living in the Pennsylvania coal region, Wolfe uses oral histories, interviews with miners and their families, speeches, children’s rhymes, and other sources to create a powerful cantata that speaks of the American worker’s experience. With music that is at times elegiac, hard-driving, and tender, Wolfe creates a soundscape that is deeply moving.
