by BWW News Desk - Sep 23, 2016

The deceptively simple lyrics and melodies of David Lang's Memorial Ground, sung by a massed chorus of voices young and old at the East Neuk Festival on 2 July this year, made for a powerfully moving musical premiere to mark the beginning of the Battle of the Somme a century ago. To commemorate the end of that devastating 21-week battle, a specially revised version of Memorial Ground is performed at a free ticketed event in London at the National Portrait Gallery in November as part of 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary.

by Richard Sasanow - Sep 13, 2016

While listening to baritone Rod Gilfry's masterful, mesmerizing performance in the world premiere of David Lang's monodrama, THE LOSER, at BAM's “Next Wave Festival,” I thought I could listen to him sing the telephone book. Come to think of it, he came pretty close to that, at BAM's Howard Gilman Opera House, with this one-hour post-minimalist rant about the effect of the brilliant pianist Glenn Gould on the careers of lesser musicians.
