• About the Music | New Music and Commissions

  • Passionate and prolific, David Lang—Carnegie Hall's 2013–2014 Richard and Barbara Debs Composer's Chair—embodies the restless spirit of invention with his creation of new forms that defy categorization. In addition to performances of several of his own works during 2013–2014, Lang has taken the opportunity to look beyond his compositions at a broader musical landscape by curating the collected stories project. This multi-genre series showcases different modes of storytelling in music, from medieval Beowulf to conceptual Cage to world premieres, pulling together disparate threads from past and present and across many traditions to highlight the ways music and narrative work together.
