Carnegie Hall presents American Composers Orchestra, an ensemble known for its "always fascinating… frequently exhilarating forays into recent music—or music that was written decades ago but is still fresh” (Newsday). The orchestra performs a new work on the subject of migration by Pulitzer Prize-winning Chinese composer Du Yun, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall. There’s also a Feldman work inspired by ancient manuscripts found along the Silk Road and Gloria Coates’s daring exploration of unconventional string tuning.
