Hailed as “one of the most vital groups of its kind” (The New York Times), the “new-music dream team” (Time Out New York) Signal explores the duality of love and lost love in narrative music making in a concert that also features The Uncluded (Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson), Nico Muhly, Sam Amidon, Iarla Ó Lionáird, and Nadia Sirota. Curated by David Lang—this season's holder of the Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair—as part of his collected stories series, the program includes works by Julia Wolfe and Nico Muhly that musically examine the emotional impact and intensity of intoxicating love, envy, betrayal, and devastating loss.
This concert is part of My Time, My Music.
