With Dutch spoken introduction
conductor Etienne Siebens
In the ironic, playful work Cheating, lying, stealing David Lang investigates his worst traits, ‘since composers are always trying to show how noble they are.’ The eventual winner of the 2014 Tromp International Percussion Competition will pull out all the stops in Mackey’s Micro-Concerto. This work was inspired by his fascination with the one-man-band mentality of percussionists. Drums and kitchen utensils are contrasted with a more 'regular' quintet. The Storioni Trio will perform Ned Rorem’s Spring Music.
