Two New Music Presentations Announced at National SawdustSome exciting classical music presentations are coming up really quickly at National Sawdust.

The first is a special preview - truly a sneak peak, if you will - of Nico Muhly's new opera Marnie, which premieres at the Met. The second is the four performances of Monica Germino playing the acclaimed violin piece MUTED, which was composed specifically for her.

Nico Muhly and Friends: "Marnie" at the Met

On the occasion of the Met premiere of Marnie, three young stars of the operatic stage break out of the opera house with an intimate soirée of the music that has meant the most to them in other contexts. Nico Muhly invites Isabel Leonard, Iestyn Davies, and a few other friends to share a convivial evening of friendship and song. Presenting music old and new, clever and sad, these versatile, wide-ranging artists have something for everyone to enjoy.

Dubbed "the quietest violin piece ever written," MUTED was composed by Louis Andriessen, Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe for Monica Germino after she was diagnosed with high sensitivity to sound. Experience this work for violin, "whisperviolin," voice, and light design as it was meant to be heard - by small groups of listeners in an intimate space. Limited availability.

Co-presented with the New York Philharmonic.

Part of the New York Philharmonic's The Art of Andriessen, a series celebrating Louis Andriessen's rich musical contributions, and explores a multitude of his works and influences.
