CRUMB: Winds of Destiny
SHAW: New Work (Bay Area Premiere)
About This Performance
Dawn Upshaw, Gil Kalish and So Percussion perform a program focusing on the expansive limits of song, including the Bay Area premiere of a new work by young American Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw and George Crumb’s Winds of Destiny, based on Civil War folk songs. Both ground-breaking composers expanded vocal techniques and forms to create a dynamic space between traditional European classical vocal music, and the worlds of avant-garde or pop music.
