Frederic Rzewski: Coming Together (1973) Part One
Selected new works
Chris Stark conductor
The Orchestra Project
Frederic Rzewski’s impassioned 1970s work, Coming Together, performed in honour of the American experimentalist's 75th birthday, provides the unifying climax to this concert of new works by an assortment of composers and sound artists that aims to capture the musical climate of today.
The new compositions will be selected by Sound Four and The Orchestra Project founders, Chris Stark and Kate Whitley, from an open call process and will form the basis of the instrumentation for this unique performance of Coming Together .
Returning for a third year to Bold Tendecies are Stark and Whitley's The Orchestra Project, whose performance of The Rite of Spring at the car park two years ago was described as “the most exciting development in classical music in decades, if not centuries” (The Times).
