Network for New Music

presents "Poetry Through Music"


Friedrich Hölderlin’s novel Hyperion is at the core of this program, serving as inspiration for both Georg Friedrich Haas’exquisite chamber work ...aus freier Lust… verbunden… and a new poem composed for Network by MacArthur “Genius” Award-winning poet Susan Stewart. Six new chamber works – by Gerald Levinson, Andrew Rudin, Eliza Brown, Benjamin Krause, Robert Capanna and Ke-Chia Chen – are composed in response to Stewart’s new poetry.

Program Change: Georg Friedrich Haas' ...aus freier Lust... verbunden... will not be performed on this concert due to an unfortunate playing injury suffered by a Network Ensemble Musician.
