Onstage discussion with Helmut Lachenmann and Seth Brodsky
The music of Helmut Lachenmann (b. 1935) has been described as "ambitious," "powerful," and "life-changing" (The Guardian). A distinctive voice, he coaxes new sounds out of familiar instruments with extended techniques, creating music that is fresh and engaging. An all-star new-music cast, including Lachenmann himself, performs a spectrum of his work spanning four decades.
