David Lang loud love songs (2004)
Loud Love Songs is about love, and about the struggle for love. My goal was to make an overtly emotional work out of very unlikely materials, focusing on percussion instruments that have traditionally been found only in the background of classical music. My concerto brings these instruments to the foreground and highlights the struggle of the soloist to breathe life into them. In this way it is as much a piece of theater as a piece of music.
