The Dave Soldier
Orchestra presents "The Most Wanted Music"and
"The Most Unwanted Music," written from the
results of a poll about people's likes and dislikes. Soldier's
compositions were inspired by Komar and Melamid’s project that is best
known as The People’s Choice (1994-97), currently on view
in the Zimmerli exhibition. The concert also features the premiere of
Soldier’s “Symphony #1: the Ganesha," a transcription of
music from the Thai Elephant Orchestra. And, for the
first time in 25 years, the Orchestra perform the full 26 minutes of
"The Most Unwanted Music."
Free and open to the
public. A reception follows the performance.
Visit the event page for all details, including
free parking information.

Yorker profile about David Soldier (aka David Sulzer),
"The Wild World of Music,"
which explores what elephants, birds, and flamenco players teach a
neuroscientist-composer about music.
* The concert also will
be performed at Le Poisson Rouge
in New York City on June 18.
