The quartet perform the music of Bryce Dessner, Matmos and David Lang
Of their last appearance at Carnegie Hall, The New Yorker music critic Alex Ross proclaimed that it was "one of the more entertaining and fulfilling evenings I've had in recent years ... I would have happily seen it five more times." For more than a decade, So Percussion has redefined the modern percussion ensemble as a flexible, omnivorous entity, pushing its voice to the forefront of American musical culture. The group brings its adventurous spirit and “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor, and bedlam” (The New Yorker) to a program that includes a major work they commissioned from David Lang, as well as the world premiere of a new work by composer-guitarist Bryce Dessner.
