From Q2 Music and New Sounds Live
“On October 12 at 7 p.m., Q2 Music presents a live audio Webcast of the Brooklyn Philharmonic from the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center performing music by Mos Def, Frederic Rzewski, Lev Zhurbin, David T. Little and Corey Dargel. The concert, a co-presentation of WNYC’s New Sounds Live with John Schaefer, features a preview of the orchestra’s upcoming season, the first under the energized stewardship of their new conductor, Alan Pierson.
The program features a fresh, multi-dimensional approach to vocal repertoire with the versatile hip hop-icon Mos Def joining the Brooklyn Philharmonic on stage for arrangements of his songs by composer-clarinetist Derek Bermel; Rzewski’s provocative setting of letters from Sam Melville, an inmate at the infamous Attica State Prison; 19th Century shape note singing; and the pop-art songs of singer-songwriter Corey Dargel. Additional performers include new-music stalwart Melissa Hughes and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.
