David Lang: darker
With musicians of The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, conductor Mischa Santora and visual art by Suzanne Bocanegra
Copresented with the Walker Art Center
“Lang, once a post minimalist enfant terrible, has solidified his standing as an American master.” – The New Yorker
David Lang, one of America’s preeminent living composers and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for music, brings his contemplative work darker to Saint Paul for its Midwest premiere. As much a hypnotic sonic and visual object as it is a piece of music, darker weaves its intricate solo lines into a delicate and subtly emotional fabric. “My piece, like life, expends a lot of effort to go a very short distance,” says Lang. “From beautiful to a little less beautiful, from a little light to something a little darker.” The performance will feature mesmerizing projections created live by New York based visual artist Suzanne Bocanegra.
