Theo Bleckmann Performs Hello Earth! - The Music of Kate Bush
Grammy nominated jazz singer and new music composer Theo Bleckmann takes on the mysterious songbook of British pop icon Kate Bush in a project that goes beyond re-creating her music to further realms of sound and interpretation. Joining him in this venture are long-time collaborator percussionist Ben Wittman, bassist Skuli Sverrisson, and keyboardist Henry Hey, along with special guest, multi-instrumentalist Caleb Burhans on viola, guitar, and laptop. This season’s Bang on a Can performances celebrate the power of artists voices, which resonates with themes in the Museum’s fall exhibitions.
LAPhil and the All-Stars premiere Julia Wolfe's Flower PowerDisney Hall, Los Angeles, CA
Saturday, January 18, 2020 - 8:00pm - Sunday, January 19, 2020 - 2:00pm
The Los Angeles Philharmonic (conducted by John Adams) and the Bang on a Can All-Stars join forces for the world premiere of Julia Wolfe’s Flower Power, inspired by a radical revolutionary moment - the late 1960's - a time when experimental ideas and questions permeated all parts of the political, social, and artistic landscapes. This shift brought new spiritual and intellectual explorations, a breakdown of social norms, psychedelic visions, artistic explosion, and a greater and more open expression of love and peace. In Flower Power, Wolfe draws on the optimism and energy of this moment in history. With visuals by Jeff Sugg.
