Density512 presents Something Borrowed
Something Borrowed explores the drive to make new work from old materials. Challenging some of Austin's finest emerging composers to "re-composed" and re-imagine songs for voice and piano by Alma Mahler to become new works for chamber orchestra. Featuring composers Akshaya Avril Tucker, Adeliia Faizullina, and Seo Yoon Kim, the "re-composed" lieder are paired with "Songs of a Wayfarer" by Alma's first husband, Gustav Mahler, and orchestrated by Arnold Schoenberg. Concert open with Ben Stevenson's version of Bach's "Contrapuntus VII" and closes with Schoenberg's "Kammersymphonie No.1."
The February 27 event, which is free with museum admission, will take place at the Blanton Museum of Art. The March 1 event will take place at CRAFT.
