Hemingway Between the Wars — featuring NEW WORK
TUESDAY 8 DECEMBER 2015
A December 2015 concert collaboration between The Morgan Library & Museum and Cygnus Ensemble, Hemingway Between Two Wars will feature five contemporary composers in fresh dialogue with a brief-but-vibrant epoch in 20th-century literature and the arts. Specially commissioned works from American composers Laura Kaminsky, Damon Ferrante, Jessie Montgomery, William Anderson, and British composer Errollyn Wallen will zoom in on the cultural milieu within which Ernest Hemingway found himself during his Parisian sojourn of the 1920s. The program will not only engage with this towering American literary figure, but also those cultural luminaries in his orbit, mostly fellow expats. All five works will be scored for Cygnus Ensemble’s exotic fusion of winds, strings, and two guitars, in addition to guest vocalists for the pieces by Wallen and Anderson, and the Sheer Pluck guitar orchestra for the piece by Anderson.
