Description

"An exceptional collaboration from perhaps the three most defining creative minds from today’s New York's inspirational music scene.

With his The Age of Adz album tour this year, Sufjan Stevens once again confirmed his status as an inimitable singer-songwriter genius; Bryce Dessner delivered sell-out performances with The National and Nico Muhly brought us the soundtrack for the Oscar-winning film The Reader as well as the recent Two Boys opera at ENO.

Presenting a unique song cycle for seven trombones and string quartet with vocals from Sufjan Stevens, the concert opens with a series of beguiling string quartets – most of them UK premieres; to continue with Stevens’ first live performance of the vocals for Bryce Dessner's brand new quartet 'Tenebrae', which he wrote for Kronos Quartet and performed at the Babrican's Reverberations weekend in May 2011.

Programme:

Nico Muhly Diacritical Marks
Sufjan Stevens Run rabbit run (selection)
Bryce Dessner Tenebrae
-
Muhly/Stevens/Dessner Song cycle for voice, string quartet and trombones (UK premiere)"
