CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

American Composers Orchestra
Orchestra Underground: In Response
The acclaimed new-music ensemble celebrates its 40th anniversary with two new works and a classic by Carnegie Hall’s Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair Philip Glass. Bryce Dessner’s Réponse Lutosławski is the creative fruit of his study of Lutosławski’s string orchestra piece Musique funèbre. Glass’s work is an homage as well: a daring take on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, with synthesizer replacing the harpsichord and a rollicking finale with a rock ‘n’ roll sensibility.
