American Composers Orchestra
Orchestra Underground: Lines on a Point
American Composers Orchestra concerts “are always fascinating, … frequently exhilarating forays into recent music—or music that was written decades ago but is still fresh" (Newsday). The inventive ensemble pairs Steve Reich’s influential work Eight Lines with David Lang’s statement to the court—based on Eugene Deb’s court statement after his landmark conviction in his fight for free speech—as well as world premieres from Lisa Coons and Amy Beth Kirsten.
This concert is part of My Time, My Music.
