Wednesday, January 9, 2019
On Sunday January 13 2019, Paul Hillier and Theatre of Voices will give the world premiere of Michael Gordon's newest vocal work: A Western (for SSATTB voices) at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany. With a nod to American movies, A Western takes place on the dusty streets of Somewheresville, USA at high noon, as the town marshal meets the bad guys in a classic showdown. A Western was co-commissioned by Coro Casa da Música, in Porto, Portugal, where a second performance of the work will take place on March 2.

Later this winter in New York, Paul Hillier and Theatre of Voices will premiere the completed version of David Lang's the writings on March 20, at Carnegie Hall. A compendium of Bible texts freely adapted by the composer, the writings draws upon the Song of Songs, and the Books of Ecclesiastes, Ruth, and Lamentations. Individual sections have been recorded by various groups over the years and are available for listening on the composer's website, and with the 25-minute new, final section, the writings clocks in at just over an hour.
