David Lang: The Little Match Girl Passion (excerpt)

The 11th Annual Carlsbad Music Festival is starting September 19th and goes through the 21st.

Pulitzer-prize winning composer and Bang on a Can co-founder David Lang will be in residence and his music will be performed throughout the Festival.

The New Yorker states “Lang, once a post-minimalist enfant terrible, has solidified his standing as an American master,” and CMF is presenting three US premieres of his work.

Steven Schick will conduct Renga, the new San Diego-based chamber orchestra he co-founded, in the US premiere of David Lang’s “Darker,” an hour-long piece for 12 solo strings.

Art of Elan will be joined by soprano Susan Narucki for a concert of music by David Lang and his students, including the US premiere of “ark luggage” for soprano and string quartet.

Sacra/Profana will give a performance of new music for choir including a world premiere by Festival Director Matt McBane and music by David Lang.

Brooklyn-based piano trio Dawn of Midi will perform their genre-defying album “Dysnomia.”

USC Thornton Edge, led by Donald Crockett, will give a concert of new music for chamber orchestra by composers Crockett, Andrew Norman, Ted Hearne, and Sean Friar.
