About This Performance

Brooklyn Festival
Part of the LA Phil's Brooklyn Festival

Bridging experimental sound, orchestral music and pop hooks, the Brooklyn Philharmonic’s celebrated new artistic director conducts an evening of Brooklyn’s most adventurous new music. Central Market was the 2009 break-through album for Tyondai Braxton, a conceptually and sonically big, multi-movement work by an artist who often works alone or with the prog-rock band Battles, but here enlisting an orchestra.

Come for:

The premiere of a “mini-opera” by Matt Marks, who describes his first album, The Little Death: Vol. 1, as a “post-Christian, nihilist pop opera.”

And more:

Samuel Adams’ blues-inspired Tension Studies, for electric guitars and percussion

This concert incudes adult language.
