David Lang's the little match girl passion

Acclaimed by The New Yorker as “an American Master,” Composer David Lang is part visionary sound artist, part musical mad scientist.  With one foot in the classical tradition and one in the future, his music explores meaning and musical relationships in a way that is at once fiercely intellectual and plain-spoken.  Join the U-M Chamber Choir, under the direction of Eugene Rogers, for a stunning performance of Lang's Pulitzer-Prize winning work, the little match girl passionThe New York Times describes this touching work as “understated and ethereal… tender and mysterious.” The performance on February 18  will be the opening event of his week-long William Bolcom Guest Residency at the University of Michigan, which will feature performances of his music and other events across campus.
