Bang on a Can Plays David Lang
July 26, 8:00pm: David Lang’s death speaks
Bang on a Can All-Stars with special guest Shara Worden
Alt-diva Shara Worden joins the Bang on a Can All-Stars for David Lang's post-Schubertian song cycle death speaks. Lang combed through every song by Franz Schubert and pulled out just the moments when Death is a character, speaking directly to us, and then set those texts to new music. The result is intimate, haunting, and strangely life-affirming "Schubertgaze" (The New York Times).
