Presented by USC School of Music at W.W. Hootie Johnson Performance Hall, Columbia SC

Mar 20 2015
Louis Andriessen’s “De Staat” Southern Exposure New Music Concert

One of the masterpieces of European minimalism, the rarely heard “De Staat” is a modern satire of Plato’s “Republic” and explores Plato’s association with music and its ability to move the masses. This work will be paired with Stephen Hartke’s “Sons of Noah,” a cantata for solo soprano, four flutes, four bassoons, and four guitars based on Machado de Assisi’s political satire “Na arca.” With the USC Wind Ensemble and music faculty.
