Composer Portraits

Luca Francesconi

Thursday, November 3, 2022, 8PM
Miller Theatre at Columbia University

The adventurous Ensemble Signal returns to perform two important premieres by Italian composer Luca Francesconi, whose “music is the result of a fearless creative voraciousness” (The Guardian). His Portrait—long overdue from two separate postponements over the course of the pandemic—features a pair of works, including Trauma Études—a large-scale, powerful piece that reflects on the human experience of trauma in a modern world.
