Innovative New York–based ensemble Sō Percussion joins the Festival Orchestra for this program. David Lang’s concerto for percussion, calling for found objects such as sticks and wine bottles, highlights the prominence of percussion in Mozart’s Turkish-themed overture, his “Paris” Symphony, and Lully’s Le Bourgeois gentilhomme.
Pre-concert talk: Pulitzer Prize–winning composer David Lang and WNYC host John Schaefer discuss Lang’s piece man made on Tuesday, August 1, at 6:15 pm in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse.
