NICO MUHLY AND FRIENDS INVESTIGATE THE GLASS ARCHIVE
This program features world premieres of Glass songs, as arranged by composer and collaborator Nico Muhly. Over his long career, Glass has written countless pieces of music for his ensemble: a band of his friends and close collaborators, performing them with his own community of musicians. In these brand-new arrangements, commissioned by Carnegie Hall, Muhly brings together a new community of musicians to perform some of Glass’s lesser-known music.

ARCHITAK
TAK ensemble and Architek percussion blend forces to present newly commissioned works by composers David Bird, Taylor Brook, Myriam Bleau, and Isaiah Ceccarelli. The program features works inspired by a range of sources, from René Descarte’s obsession with a life- sized clockwork doll which travelled with him everywhere, to the musical and metaphysical meanings of a ‘pulse,’ to a 19th-century account of the life of Saint Edward the Confessor.
