Description

George Lewis: Assemblage

Featuring Ensemble Dal Niente

New York Premiere

Free with Museum admission registration recommended


The inimitable composer, trombonist, and experimentalist George Lewis says his ideas tend to come in a rush, like “driving on an Alpine road in your fancy Alfa Romeo and there are all these sharp turns, corners, and sudden stops.” From that wild ride comes Lewis’s composition Assemblage, full of its own hairpin shifts in tempo and texture, inspired by the titular collage-like technique from the visual arts. Chicago’s “superb contemporary-music collective” (The New York Times) Ensemble Dal Niente, for whom the piece was written, gives the New York-premiere performance along with two other works in this exhilarating program. A talk with George Lewis and multimedia artist Camille Norment follows the show.
