On Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 8:00pm at the Ordway Concert Hall in Saint Paul, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series and the Walker Art Center present David Lang: darker. David Lang, one of America's preeminent living composers and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for music, brings his contemplative work darker to Saint Paul for its Midwest premiere. Scored for 12 strings, darker is more of an object than a piece of music, weaving together intricate solo lines into a delicate and subtly emotional fabric. "My piece, like life, expends a lot of effort to go a very short distance," says Lang.
