Apr-24-14 06:00 PM collected stories: (post)folk Hailed as “one of the most vital and original ensembles on the American music scene” (The New York Times), Alarm Will Sound and its fearless Artistic Director Alan Pierson uncover how composers utilize musical language to underscore factual and fictional history. The group performs Donnacha Dennehy’s Grá agus Bás, which weaves traditional Irish music into contemporary forms to address the ebb of ancient morphing into the present. The program also includes the US premiere of Richard Ayres No. 42 In the Alps, incorporating yodeling and other folk idioms to articulate the tale of a young plane crash survivor, portrayed by the haunting Kiera Duffy, as well as the world premieres of commissions by Australian composer Kate Moore and avant-garde virtuoso guitarist Kaki King.
Apr-24-14 06:00 PM collected stories: love/loss 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 is joined by The Uncluded and some of the most inventive soloists on the new-music scene to explore the duality of love and lost love rooted in narrative music making. 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.

Tom Cipullo's Credo for a Secular City, commissioned by the Cecilia Chorus of New York, is for full chorus, orchestra and baritone solo. It explores the intersections and tensions between belief and doubt in the modern world, drawing upon texts from great writers and thinkers, including Shakespeare, Descartes, Milton, poets, essayists and preachers, as well as parts of the Latin liturgy. Mr. Cipullo, the winner of a 2012 Guggenheim Fellowship, the 2013 Sylvia Goldstein Award from Copland House, and the 2013 Arts & Letters Award from the American Academy, is a master at combining music and text, and has received enthusiastic reviews for his abilities with vocal writing. (http://tomcipullo.com/). Rising young American baritone Michael Anthony McGee, the 2010 recipient of the George London award, will be the featured soloist. Also on the program will be three major choral orchestral works on the theme of musical- spiritual exploration of transcendence: Brahms’s Nänie, on poetry by Schiller; the Te Deum of Anton Bruckner, and Toward the Unknown Region, the breakthrough work by Ralph Vaughan Williams on poetry by Walt Whitman. Joining Mr. McGee as soloists for the concert will be French mezzo-soprano Virginie Verrez and American tenor Noah Baetge.
