Lincoln Center Out of Doors – Damrosch Park Bandshell
New York, NY
José González with yMusic (World Premiere)
Modern-day troubadour’s González’ poignantly delicate voice, masterfully eloquent classical guitar, achingly emotional melodies and thought-provoking lyrics will be reframed by new chamber orchestra arrangements by yMusic’s Rob Moose in a world premiere collaboration.
Art rock collides with contemporary classical in the hands of this Gen Y ensemble, the go-to group for My Brightest Diamond, St. Vincent, and Antony and the Johnsons, among others.They open the eveningwith instrumental pieces by some of today’s most vital composers, including Nico Muhly, The National’s Bryce Dessner, and Son Lux.
