STRAVINSKY Histoire du soldat
Hear the “fun, fearless, and effing great” (Time Out New York) young musicians of Ensemble ACJW bring to life Stravinsky’s jazz-inflected, wacky (but topical) tale of a soldier who sells his soul to the devil for a book that predicts the uncertain economic future—information the soldier uses to become rich. Joining the Stravinsky is a new work by Sleeping Giant, a collective of emerging New York–based composers “rapidly gaining notice for their daring innovations, stylistic range, and acute attention to instrumental nuance” (WQXR).
