CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

American Composers Orchestra

Friday, March 25, 2022 7:30 PM Zankel Hall
Jennifer Koh by Jürgen Frank
Guest conductor Marin Alsop guides a musical journey to the places—both physical and intangible—where composers find inviolable refuge. Lisa Bielawa’s Sanctuary, a concerto for violinist Jennifer Koh, delves into the history behind this powerful word, documenting the rhetoric around founding American principles and the ongoing struggle to form a more perfect union. Poet Audra Lorde provided the inspiration for Anna Clyne’s Restless Oceans, a defiant work that praises the power of women, while Hannah Kendall’s Tuxedo: Vasco ‘de’ Gama contemplates globalization and multiculturalism ushered in by the famed Portuguese explorer. Newly commissioned works by Dai Wei and Paula Matthusen complete this rich musical odyssey into the human soul.
