The art-song recital is given fresh new life in the 21c Liederabend festival. Over the course of two evenings—with each featuring a distinct, dynamic program—video artists and lighting designers are paired with luminaries from the New York and international new-music scenes.
Boasting 10 world premieres, the festival—which played to sold-out audiences in its last two incarnations—showcases performances by NOVUS NY, the Choir of Trinity Wall Street, and a host of top soloists. The Friday lineup (Program 1) includes songs by Missy Mazzoli, Ted Hearne, Muhammad Fairouz, David T. Little, Marie Incontrera, Eric Whitacre, Tod Machover, and more. On Saturday (Program 2), hear Anna Clyne’s commissioned song cycle As Sudden Shut; Judd Greenstein’s My City: Manahatta, featuring animation by Joshua Frankel; Paola Prestini’s Hubble Cantata; works by Nico Muhly; and much more.
