ACME and Roomful of Teeth

  • Montclair State University 1 Normal Ave Montclair, NJ, 07043 United States (map)

Ask Caroline Shaw -- composer, violinist, vocalist and now youngest-ever recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music -- to program a concert for the two ensembles with whom she performs, and what do you get?  An incredible evening of music that celebrates the works of three breathtakingly original composers, including Shaw’s own Partita for 8 Voices, declared a “dazzling, emotionally generous take on a Baroque dance suite” by The New York Times; the world premiere of a new version of her multimedia tour de force, Ritornello, featuring elements of American hymnody and Baroque music; Gavin Bryars’ heartrending Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet; and the intense, introspective glory of Henry Purcell’s fantasias.
