Program

MEMBERS OF SLEEPING GIANT (ANDREW NORMAN / CHRISTOPHER CERRONE / JACOB COOPER / ROBERT HONSTEIN) Histories (NY Premiere, commissioned by Carnegie Hall)
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).
