Third Street Music School and David Lang

The popular New Sounds Live series returns to the Winter Garden this October! Curated by WNYC‘s John Schaefer, New Sounds offers dynamic music from artists, composers, and traditional musicians.

David Lang is one of the most highly-esteemed and performed American composers writing today. His works have been performed around the world and in most of the great concert halls.

Lang won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in music for the little match girl passion, based on a fable by Hans Christian Andersen and Lang’s own rewriting of the libretto to Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion. The recording of the piece on Harmonia Mundi was awarded a 2010 Grammy Award for Best Small Ensemble Performance. Lang has also been the recipient of the Rome Prize, Le Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, and was Musical America’s 2013 Composer of the Year.
